Three Florida men, including the president of The Villages retirement community, have been sentenced for misdemeanor poaching violations in Montana.

Mark Morse pleaded guilty Tuesday to hunting without a license in both Yellowstone and Big Horn counties. James Rainey and Lenard Powell entered a similar plea in Big Horn county.

Morse, president of the Orlando-area retirement community, was ordered to pay $4,500 in fines and restitution. Rainey was ordered to pay $4,000 and Powell $2,000.

Prosecutors alleged the violations occurred on a ranch co-owned by Morse and Rainey that straddles the two counties. Rainey and Powell own construction companies.

The men did not lose their hunting and fishing privileges.

Morse’s wife, daughter, business partners and employees were among 10 people who were charged.
