Oklahoma City, OK – Okla. hunting guide accused of deceptive practices

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A hunting guide from Broken Arrow is charged with deceptive trade practices for allegedly cheating hunters out of more than $75,000.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt says James Adam Jenkins was arrested on Tuesday after being charged in Tulsa County with three counts of unfair or deceptive trade practice in violation of the Oklahoma Consumer Protection Act.

Prosecutors say Jenkins solicited money over the Internet and in magazines from at least three hunters to schedule, outfit and lead deer, elk and quail hunts in western Oklahoma and Colorado. Several hunters complained that Jenkins accepted their money but cancelled the hunts without refunds.

The state also alleges Jenkins doesn't have leases or permission to hunt the land included in the ads. Pruitt says more charges may be filed.
