EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Hunting bans are in place for two men who pleaded guilty in a poaching case involving a spotlight.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2jt49tS) 41-year-old Scott Michael Blachly and 40-year-old Kevin Duane Neu were told during sentencing that they were barred from hunting for the next three years.

Troopers cited Blachly on Nov. 4.

Authorities say he was on private property when he shined a spotlight on a three-point buck and killed the animal.

Neu was cited as an accomplice.

Hunting deer with artificial light is a misdemeanor.
