TERREBONNE, Ore. (AP) - In a story Oct. 4 about the conviction and sentencing of two men for poaching, The Associated Press reported erroneously the type of animal killed. They were found guilty of poaching a deer, not elk.

A corrected version of the story is below:

2 convicted and sentenced for deer poaching in central Oregon

Two men have been convicted and sentenced for deer poaching in central Oregon

TERREBONNE, Ore. (AP) - Two men have been convicted and sentenced for deer poaching in central Oregon.

Oregon State Police said in a news release that 43-year-old Justin Aplin and his father, 65-year-old Jerry Aplin, were found guilty by a jury last week for a 2014 poaching near Terrebonne in the Metolius Wildlife Management Unit.

Justin Aplin was convicted of unlawful taking of a trophy buck and borrowing a big game tag. Jerry Aplin was convicted of loaning a big game tag and aiding in a wildlife violation.

They must pay $7,500 in restitution to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for the trophy buck. Both had their hunting privileges suspended for three years and will be on probation for a year.

The agency started investigating the men after receiving an anonymous tip.
