Pruitt says Jenkins accepted deposits for guided trips to hunt deer, elk and quail but then canceled the hunts without refunding the money. He didn't have permission to hunt the land included in his advertisements, according to the state.

He received a 5-year deferred sentenced and probation, conditional upon paying his victims back.

The money Jenkins paid in restitution will go to his victims, Pruitt said. Jenkins also is prohibited from engaging in the hunting guide business while on probation.
