An investigation concluded that between September 2012 and April 2018, Jacob Hueftle and other conspirators provided guiding and outfitting services to hunting clients for the illegal killing of 97 big game animals or wild turkeys in violation of Nebraska State Law, including 30 white-tailed deer, 34 mule deer, six pronghorn and 27 wild turkey.

Nearly all of HHO’s contracted hunting clients resided outside the state of Nebraska, including at least 118 clients from 21 states outside of Nebraska. HHO guiding and hunting services to contracted hunting clients ran $2,500 to $7,000 depending upon the target species.

The investigation found that Hueftle and other HHO associates intentionally created and maintained bait sites at or near client hunting locations to attract and kill big game and turkey. Law enforcement concluded that about 80% of the archery white-tailed deer killed by clients were within a baited area, and approximately 50% of HHO clients’ rifle white-tailed deer kills were within a baited area.

It was also found that Hueftle and other HHO associates regularly gun hunted non-game migratory birds, including various native species of hawks or falcons such as red-tailed hawks and American kestrels while the birds perched upon fence lines or electrical power lines.

Sentencing continues in Nebraska’s Hidden Hills Outfitters case. So far, the ongoing investigation has identified 33 defendants – all of which have pleaded guilty for their involvement in poaching a variety of big game animals, including mule deer, whitetail deer, wild turkeys and antelope.

The latest defendant is Conrad Hueftle. According to the North Platte Telegraph, he was sentenced last week to two years’ probation for violating the Lacey Act and convicted of one count of the illegal take of wildlife in interstate commerce. He was ordered to pay $2,500 in restitution and a $5,000 fine for the illegal take of a mule deer buck on Nov. 12, 2016.

According to the report, while he did hunt during the state’s firearm season, Hueftle knowingly used a Nebraska resident firearm restricted buck only permit in a mule deer conservation area, which “requires particularly authorized permits to kill the animal.” The U.S. Attorney Joseph Kelly’s office discovered that Hueftle knew that he was using his restricted deer permit in an unlawful way and that his specific permit “did not authorize the killing of a mule deer within the area.” 

Further, he used another Hidden Hills Outfitters client to help ship the head, antlers and cape to a taxidermy business in Watertown, Wisconsin, with instructions to turn it all into a European-style head mount, according to the North Platte Telegraph. Investigators confiscated the mule deer mount and a 4x4 whitetail deer mount as part of his plea agreement.

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Guided hunting, making the news recently. Unfortunately, one business in Arnold, Nebraska is being harmed by the actions of another.

Due to misunderstanding and two names which are quite similar; Hidden Valley Outfitters of Arnold is taking some of the heat brought on by the actions of Hidden Hills Outfitters of Broken Bow.

Look again, and look closely: Hidden VALLEY Outfitters is near Arnold. Hidden HILLS Outfitters is near Broken Bow. The two businesses are pretty near one another geographically, but could not be further apart in practice.

Customers and visitors to the Arnold business are giving rave reviews about service and ethical practices by Arnold’s Hidden Valley Outfitters. One man writing on Facebook,

“No one, I repeat, no one respects the game and the game laws more than Cory and Dan at Hidden Valley.”

Cory Peterson of Arnold, and Dan Blowers of Gothenburg are the owners of Hidden Valley Outfitters in Arnold. They are not affiliated with Hidden Hills Outfitters in Broken Bow in any way. And they want people to know that.

And why would they?

The Broken Bow business recently made national attention after several people were charged with illegal hunting practices. Hunters, coming from at least 21 states for hunting adventures; paying top dollar to take home a trophy.

It was proven in court that the Broken Bow version of this business model included using whatever means necessary to send a dead animal home with the buyer.

But the outfitters in Arnold had nothing to do with the illegal activity at Broken Bow.

The Arnold business wants the misunderstanding cleared up so they can get back to business without the added stress of the confusion.

Arnold Insurance Agency, on Facebook, is pleading with people to help untangle the connection which does not even exist, other than in proximity of location, and similar names.

“Help our long-time customer clear their name! There has been confusion between our customer, Hidden Valley Outfitters of Arnold, NE, and Hidden Hills Outfitters of Broken Bow, NE, who was recently charged with illegal hunting practices which is drawing national attention. There is NO affiliation between these two outfitters. They are completely different businesses being run by completely different people. Hidden Valley Outfitters runs a reputable operation and is HIGHLY RESPECTED in our area and with their customer base. Please share to help clear up this misunderstanding and to stop the hate being put upon innocent people. Thank you!”

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Jordan Cook, age 32, of Boerne, Texas, has been sentenced in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for violating the Lacey Act. The Lacey Act prohibits the trafficking in interstate commerce “tainted” (i.e., taken in violation of a law or regulation) wildlife, fish, or indigenous plants.

Cook admitted to six misdemeanor counts of the illegal taking of wildlife in interstate commerce and was sentenced by United States Magistrate Judge Michael D. Nelson to five years of probation. Cook was ordered to pay a $50,000 fine and $39,150 in restitution.

A joint investigation conducted by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Law Enforcement and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Law Enforcement Division determined that between May 2014 and May 2017, Cook was employed by Hidden Hills Outfitters (HHO), a commercial big game guiding and outfitting business located near Broken Bow, Nebraska, and provided hunting and guiding services to HHO clients.

The investigation determined that during a number of these hunts, Cook guided and assisted HHO clients in unlawful hunting activities which included hunting and taking white-tailed deer, mule deer, and wild turkey within baited areas, from a public roadway, at night, without a valid permit, in excess of the bag limit, and with prohibited weapons, all of which are in violation of Nebraska State law or regulation.

In April 2015, Cook guided a Virginia resident and HHO turkey hunting client whom Cook knew only possessed one spring turkey permit. Cook aided and directed the client in unlawfully killing at least three turkeys, knowing that the client’s permit authorized only one turkey.

During November 2015, Cook guided a New York resident and HHO white-tailed deer rifle hunting client. Cook, knowing and previously participating in HHO’s unlawful establishment and use of numerous baited areas, guided, accompanied, and assisted the client taking a trophy-sized white-tailed deer from an elevated tree stand placed less than 50 yards from an HHO bait site located west of Brewster, Nebraska.

During December 2015, Cook guided an Indiana resident and HHO muzzleloader mule deer hunting client. Cook guided and assisted the client unlawfully taking the mule deer with a shotgun, knowing the weapon was prohibited by Nebraska law during the muzzleloader season. Each of the hunts involved wildlife taken and possessed in violation of Nebraska state law that was subsequently transported in interstate commerce from HHO to the clients’ respective residence or elsewhere.

In January 2017, Cook transported antlers and hides from two trophy-sized mule deer and one trophy-sized white-tailed deer in interstate commerce.

Cook, knowing the unlawful nature of the hunts, transported parts from deer taken during the 2016 season from HHO to a taxidermist located near Clifton, Colorado, on behalf of their respective owners, which included a 6 X 9 set of antlers scoring in excess of 200 inches originating from a mule deer taken unlawfully by an HHO owner without a permit, during night-time closed season hours, from the roadway, and with a suppressed rifle during archery season; a 5 X 6 set of 195-inch antlers originating from a mule deer taken unlawfully by another HHO guide without a permit and with a suppressed rifle during the muzzleloader season; and a 6 X 6 set of 180-inch antlers originating from a white-tailed deer taken unlawfully by an HHO client without a permit, during night-time closed season hours, from the roadway, and with a suppressed rifle during muzzleloader season.

Both mule deer taken unlawfully without permits by the HHO owner and guide were submitted to the Colorado taxidermist with hunting permits falsely representing them as being killed by other HHO clients in order to conceal the fact they were killed unlawfully without a permit.

In addition, Cook knew the 200-inch-plus set of mule deer antlers and a second trophy-sized mule deer were taken by the HHO owner who, after unlawfully killing the deer with a suppressed rifle and at night, severed the trophy heads/antlers, abandoned the headless deer carcasses at the kill site and intentionally failed to salvage any edible meat, and transported and concealed both sets of trophy heads/antlers at a remote wooded location near Brewster, Nebraska, referred to by HHO associates as “The Contraband Lot.”

Cook was present and personally assisted an HHO owner guiding two HHO clients who unlawfully took a total of three white-tailed deer and two mule deer in three days, including the 180-inch white-tailed deer he transported to the Colorado taxidermist.

The sentencing is a continuation of the ongoing prosecution of numerous defendants related to violations committed by owners, guides, and clients of Hidden Hills Outfitters. To date, twenty-five defendants have pleaded guilty and have been sentenced and ordered to pay a total of $240,548 in fines and restitution for underlying violations related to deer taken within baited areas; deer, pronghorn, and wild turkeys taken with weapons or firearms prohibited during their respective hunting seasons; deer taken during closed season hours, from the road, or without a valid permit; and mule deer taken within the Mule Deer Conservation Area.

The operation was a joint investigation conducted by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Law Enforcement and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Law Enforcement Division.

Justice News

Acting United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Nolan Hueftle, age 60, of Broken Bow, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha by United States Magistrate Judge Michael D. Nelson for violating the Lacey Act.  The Lacey Act prohibits the trafficking in interstate commerce "tainted" (i.e., taken in violation of a law or regulation) wildlife, fish, or indigenous plants.  Hueftle was convicted of one count of the illegal taking of wildlife in interstate commerce and sentenced to five years’ probation.  Magistrate Judge Nelson ordered Hueftle to pay a $30,000 fine. As part of his probation terms, Hueftle shall not hunt, trap, guide, outfit, or otherwise assist or be present in the field with anyone engaging in those activities.  Hueftle is also prohibited from being involved in the manufacturing, selling, distributing, or marketing of “PrimeTine” or any other deer or wildlife supplement while on probation.

An investigation determined that in October, 2015, Hueftle, a Hidden Hills Outfitters (HHO) co-owner, provided guiding and outfitting services to a Louisiana resident upon property located in Blaine County, Nebraska.  During the course of the hunt, Hueftle, HHO owner Jacob Hueftle, and the hunting client located a white-tailed deer wounded by the client the previous day.  Hueftle was present and observed HHO owner Jacob Hueftle unlawfully shoot and kill the client’s deer with an AR-style rifle, a weapon prohibited from use during the Nebraska archery deer season.  In addition, Hueftle knew Jacob Hueftle was prohibited from hunting or possessing a firearm at the time.  Hueftle later assisted recovering the deer from the kill site and transported the unlawfully taken deer back to the HHO Lodge.  Parts of the deer were later transported in interstate commerce back to the hunting client’s out-of-state residence.

Pursuant to the terms of a plea agreement, Hueftle also admitted to his co-ownership and involvement with HHO, including his knowledge and involvement with various ongoing wildlife violations conducted or authorized by HHO and its guides and employees between 2013 and 2018.  Hueftle admitted that HHO acquired at least 115,378 pounds of deer feed products used for the establishment and maintenance of at least 68 baited hunting locations, that Hueftle personally assisted maintaining the bait sites at or near HHO client hunting locations, and that Hueftle knew HHO clients routinely killed white-tailed deer within baited areas.  Nebraska state law prohibits the establishment of baited areas for the purpose of hunting big game or turkeys and prohibits hunting or taking big game or turkeys within a baited area.

Hueftle admitted knowing firearms were routinely and unlawfully used for the taking of white-tailed deer and mule deer during archery and muzzleloader seasons.  Nebraska state law prohibits the possession and use of firearms while hunting deer under the authority of an archery permit.  Hueftle also admitted routinely assisting with the butchering, processing, and disposal of client deer at the HHO Lodge, and needlessly and wantonly wasting edible meat of HHO client deer including negligently allowing carcasses to spoil, and dumping and disposing the carcasses (including edible meat) near the HHO Lodge and on family property near Cozad, Nebraska.

Hueftle admitted that between 2013 and 2018, he and other HHO owners, guides, and associates provided hunting and guiding services to at least 118 clients from 21 states resulting in the unlawful taking of at least 97 white-tailed deer, mule deer, pronghorn, and wild turkey, and that parts of that wildlife were subsequently transported into other states.  Hueftle provided hunting and guiding services to HHO clients, had knowledge and assisted in various unlawful hunts, and received a 25% share of all HHO profits annually. 

The sentencing hearing today is part of the ongoing prosecution of numerous defendants related to violations committed by owners, guides, and clients of Hidden Hills Outfitters.  To date, 36 defendants have pleaded guilty and have been sentenced and ordered to pay a total of $627,732 in fines and restitution, serve 30 months of incarceration, 38 years of probation, and 63 years of hunting and guiding restrictions for underlying violations related to at least 97 unlawfully-taken big game animals or wild turkey including deer taken within baited areas; deer, pronghorn, and wild turkeys taken with weapons or firearms prohibited during their respective hunting seasons; deer taken during closed season hours, from the road, or without a valid permit; and mule deer taken within the Mule Deer Conservation Area.

The operation was a joint investigation conducted by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Law Enforcement and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Law Enforcement Division.
