KODIAK - A hunter from Georgia was fined more than $14,000 for killing a brown bear without a proper license last year in Kodiak.
Alaska State Troopers said 57-year-old Stan Steiner of Americus purchased a resident hunting license and bear tag without meeting residency requirements.
An Anchorage court also ordered Steiner to forfeit the bear hide and barred him from hunting in Alaska for two years.
