ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A Florida man who hunted under a false identity and then complained about the quality of the hunt has been fined for illegally killing a brown bear in Alaska.
Federal authorities say 36-year-old Jack Vincent Dickerson of Spring Hill pleaded guilty and was fined $50,000. He also must pay Cabela's Inc. for the hunt and pay restitution to the state. He also is required to forfeit his hunting rifle and the bear rug he had made.
Court records say Dickerson used a friend's name to acquire a big game hunting license in 2008 and 2009. Dickerson got a brown bear sow in 2009, but then complained to Cabela's about the hunt, saying he wanted a 10-foot trophy male. He also had the charges removed from his credit card.
