Celeb Hunter Can Travel While On Probation

KSAL StaffJune 25, 2014
Federal prosecutors want a celebrity hunter from Tennessee to spend three months in jail for violating probation in a Kansas case.

A judge is allowing a celebrity hunter who unlawfully killed a deer in Kansas to travel abroad while on probation once his ban from hunting worldwide expires.

Federal prosecutors argued Wednesday the career of William “Spook” Spann would not suffer from the travel ban. But U.S. Magistrate Judge James O’Hara disagreed and ruled that Spann may make six trips for hunts in South Africa, Canada, Russia and Mexico.

Spann, of Tennessee, was banned last year from hunting anywhere for a year and sentenced to three years’ probation. The hunting prohibition ends in August.

Spann pleaded guilty to transporting across state lines antlers of a deer killed on land adjoining his Kansas property. He was only permitted to hunt on his property.

Spann has a hunting show, “Spook Nation,” on the Pursuit Channel.
