Two Indiana hunting instructors will not be able to hunt or possess firearms for two years after pleading guilty Tuesday to killing a bear in Pitkin County and leaving the carcass behind nearly a year and a half ago.

Dan Roe, 55, and his son, Alex Roe, 27, pleaded guilty to willful destruction of big game, a felony, as well as misdemeanor counts of failure to dress or care for wildlife, illegal possession of wildlife and hunting without permission.

As part of a plea deal with the District Attorney’s Office, the two men were sentenced to two years of unsupervised probation. The felony will be wiped from their criminal records if both stay out of trouble for the next two years as part of the agreement.
