Matthew Alwine of Washington State is or should we say was the TV host of the show “Trophy State of Mind” and was charged with five counts of failing to obtain landowner permission while hunting game animals, one count of unlawful possession of a trophy white tailed deer and one count of unlawful possession of a bull elk. The judge imposed over $11,000 in fines, restitution and court costs and took away Alwine’s hunting privileges for four years for the crimes he committed in 2010 and 2014. Alwine also had to hand over all animal parts that were seized during the investigation including five elk and three deer.
The investigation was kicked off by and anonymous tip and was later discovered that he had been hunting for several years on private property located in the Crazy Mountains, Montana without the landowner’ permission. A few of the hunts on this land were filmed and featured on his TV show and other hunting videos.
