ANCHORAGE — A 29-year-old Homer man has signed a plea agreement admitting participation in an illegal Denali National Park moose hunt.
The Anchorage Daily News reports Michael Barth admitted Friday to a violation of the federal Lacey Act.
Three other men are charged in the September 2012 hunt.
Prosecutors say Barth and others obtained permission to hunt on a private land within the park.
Prosecutors say one hunter shot a bull inside the park near the boundary with the private land and another hunter shot a second park moose that Barth tagged. Both bulls were dragged onto the private land with an all-terrain vehicle.
Barth agreed to surrender antlers and meat.
Prosecutors are recommending a sentence of two years’ probation, loss of hunting privileges for a year and a $2,500 fine.
