The well-known Hadley Creek Outfitters owner is now set for trial in April.
Back in November 2017, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources released information regarding the 50 citations and warnings issued to Hadley Creek Outfitters. The citations were for illegal deer hunting practices in Pike and Adams counties.
The founder of Hadley Creek, Stacey Ward, pleaded not guilty last week to 10 misdemeanor counts, including two deer hunting violations and eight rule violations.
Ward will go on trial in the Pike County Circuit Court starting April 10.
