Kiernan admitted to illegally killing a 16-point and an 11-point whitetail. He also confessed to hunting without permission in the three cases. Kiernan was fined $10,000 restitution for the 36-point buck, and $840 in additional fines. The trophy bucks, as well as Kiernan's hunting equipment, were seized by the DNR. Kiernan will not be able to hunt in Illinois for two years, and he may receive additional suspension of his hunting privileges.
