WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas hunting guides nabbed during an undercover operation were spared prison after pleading guilty to exceeding daily bag limits.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Wichita says two guides for Misty Morning Outfitters of Haven were sentenced Wednesday to a year’s probation and a $1,000 fine for violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Lane Hensley of Liberal exceeded the daily limit of three Canada geese when he took undercover U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agents on a 2011 hunt in Reno County. Tanner Cox of Wichita exceeded the daily limit of 15 mourning doves during a 2011 hunt in Reno County.

The owner of the Misty Morning Outfitters, Ryan Warden, was sentenced in November to five years of probation, a fine of $2,500 and restitution of $5,000.
