BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Tennessee man accused of acting as a hunting outfitter in North Dakota without a license has been fined more than $4,000 and stripped of his hunting privileges for 18 months.

Forty-year-old Robert “Adam” Whitten, of Counce, Tennessee, was charged in October after a district warden investigated a complaint that Whitten had unlawfully placed “No Hunting” signs on private property.

Wildlife officials say Whitten was staying on a rented farmstead in southwestern Emmons County for most of October. Prior to his arrival in North Dakota, Whitten allegedly took money from nonresident hunters for what he advertised as a place to stay and access to 5,000 acres of hunting land for waterfowl and upland game.

Whitten was charged with two counts of outfitting without a license, both Class A misdemeanors.
