Six indicted in SD hunting bust

Sioux Falls, South Dakota (AP) 6-08

Six people have been indicted for alleged hunting violations in South Dakota.

Brent and Dawn Barton, who own the Mobridge and Mina-area hunting outfitter South Dakota Adventures, are accused of arranging illegal hunts for at least 36 customers between 2003 and 2006.

Authorities say the couple convinced state and tribal employees to falsify hunting-license records.

Kirk and Frankie Johnson are accused of leasing land to the Bartons and guiding some of the illegal hunts.

Also charged are Connie Frailing, a license agent for the state and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Dan Haakenson, a tribal license administrator.
