Spann Gets Jail Time. Copyright John L. Sloan July 31, 2013

Dickson television hunting personality”Spook” Spann is looking at possible time behind bars. William “Spook” Spann has been sentenced to 30-days in jail and banned from hunting worldwide for a year.
Spann, 50 from Dickson received the sentence from Judge James P O’Hara today in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, MO for violating his parole on a previous wildlife violation. In 2012, Spann pled guilty to a 2007 violation of the Lacey Act. He brought an illegally tagged buck to TN from Kansas. He was ordered to pay $20,000 in fines and restitution and was banned form hunting in the U.S. for six months. In addition, he was ordered to forfeit the buck which had 230-inches of antlers, making it one of the largest ever killed with a bow. He also had to forfeit any replicas he had made.
Federal wardens obtained video footage and facebook photos of Spann in camouflage assisting other hunters during the 2013 TN spring turkey season. Although he did not kill a bird and was not carrying a gun, he was ruled to be hunting thereby violating the terms of his probation.

I would think, bye, bye show. Hard to tape when you have a 1-yr ban world wide.

Not hard when you violate Federal Parole, but pleading guilty in Feb of this year you are no NO HUNTing nation wide you run over seas to New Zealand to hunt and them in the middle of parole violation hearings to go to Africa to hunt, Federal Judges
doesn't like people who think they are that smart

I don't really agree with saying he was hunting, but he should not have been in the situation anyways.
