Two more hunters are charged with poaching in western Iowa. According to the Department of Natural Resources, two Nebraska men were apprehended Sunday, after someone called the “Turn in Poachers” hotline to report the men used rifles to shoot two antlered deer, west of Mondamin in Harrison County.
The men were leaving a field and had planned on heading back to Nebraska, when they were caught. Neither man had an Iowa deer tag or small game license. They were identified as 29-year old Jamey Vornbrock, of Tekamah, Nebraska and 38-year old Mark Brolin, of Omaha, Nebraska. Following the arrests, Conservation officers confiscated a nine-millimeter pistol, two-rifles, an all-terrain vehicle, the antlered deer and other items. Charges against the men are pending.
They’re facing fines that could amount to 20-thousand dollars. Earlier this month, five Pennsylvania men were stopped on Interstate 80 in Cass County. They were charged with numerous game violations following a hunt in Shelby County.
