Poacher Gets Jail Time in Kansas

Poacher sentenced

The Capital-Journal
CLAY CENTER -- A Clay Center man was sentenced to seven years and 11 months in prison Tuesday for crimes that escalated from a deer-poaching incident in November.

Clay County Attorney Rick James said Gene Bitler, 50, was sentenced on one count of attempted first-degree murder and seven misdemeanor offenses that included criminal hunting, deprivation of property, contributing to the misconduct of a child, fleeing and attempting to elude, taking deer in a closed season, wanton waste for leaving a deer carcass in a field, and hunting without a tag or permit.

Bitler was confronted in November by Marvin Macy, a Clay County farmer who had seen him poaching on his farm the night of Nov. 13.

During that encounter, Macy suffered cuts and stab wounds to his face, abdomen and back.
