**The You Can Arrest Any Citizen if You Try Hard Enough Award **
The owner and the manager of Bellar's Place, Indiana's largest private deer-hunting preserve, were just trying to make hunting less troublesome for their clients. But try telling that to overzealous federal officials. Russell Bellar, 49, and Hinds Jones, 36, are facing more than 30 felony charges just because they let hunters measure a buck's rack before the selected deer was tranquilized, led into a pen, and "hunted" for as much as $20,000. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, since 2001 the two men have conducted more than 50 of these deer...hunts. Authorities said their investigation also found illegal weapons, unlicensed hunters, and the use of bait. Bellar, a developer, denies that he charged hunters huge sums to kill particular deer, saying they had merely paid bed-and-breakfast fees. He dismissed the case-each of the 30 felonies carries a potential five years in prison or a $250,000 fine-as a political vendetta by the state department of natural resources. "This is all political stuff; that's all it is," said Bellar on the day of the raid. "They are against anyone that raises whitetail deer."
