Film Crew Members Get Fines And Jail Time for Hunting, Firearms Violations

By Ben Romans

Three men, one a former felon and another a police officer, recently pleaded guilty to a slew of game violations in Iowa and Missouri and received jail time and $14,254 in fines and civil damages. The men were part of a filming crew known as Nock'd Up Productions 

A story from Nebraska NBC affiliate WOWT says Jessie Bolin, Paul Bolin, and Steven Cole came under suspicion after a conservation officer received a tip that Jessie Bolin shot a buck without the proper license.

After an extensive investigation, officers conducted a search warrant at Cole's house in November 2012 and found 23 illegal deer racks, 12 turkey beards and spurs, deer meat, pheasant meat, and geese and ducks being prepped for mounting.

Cole admitted to killing an Iowa buck and purchasing a license afterward, and purchasing resident licenses in both Missouri and Iowa. He pleaded guilty and was assessed $12,300 in total fines and penalties and two years in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Jesse Bolin, a police officer in Mound City, Missouri, was ordered to pay $1,200 in fines and penalties, forfeit his hunting equipment, and perform 100 hours of community service at Waubonsie State Park. Jesse Bolin and Cole still face additional hunting charges in Missouri.

Jessie Bolin will likely also be looking for employment somewhere else. Hunting with a known felon ... that will sink him for sure. Talk about conduct unbecoming of a police officer. Doesn't get much more unbecoming than that. What a bunch of losers!

It's "hunters" like this that give us legal and ethical hunters a bad name. I would have liked to see the fines much higher and hopefully their licenses revoked for life. Their total disregard of the law is appalling...shame on them!
