Adam L. Lawinger, 28 of Mineral Point, Wisconsin and owner of Blue River Outfitters has pleaded guilty to conspiring with others to sell illegally hunted deer and turkey and to selling illegally hunted wildlife across state lines. He was charged last month in Federal court.

Lawinger faces up to five years in prison but he hopes to get a break on his sentence as part of a plea deal by telling all. Along with Lawinger, as many as 45 others have been charged for various hunting violations.

Authorities went under cover in an investigation to observe what Lawinger and his partner were doing in their business. A decision has not been made yet on whether or not to charge the partner. This is the result of a long investigation.
