KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A federal judge in Kansas said he will rule by the end of July on whether to revoke probation for a professional Tennessee hunter accused of violating his plea deal.

William "Spook" Spann was sentenced in February to three years' probation for transporting antlers from an illegally taken deer in Kansas to his home in 2007. As part of his sentence, Spann was ordered not to hunt in the U.S. for six months or break wildlife laws.

Prosecutors want the 50-year-old to spend three months in jail for violating those terms after Tennessee wildlife agents claimed he hunted and illegally spread bait on his property.

Spann said he didn't carry a gun or shoot anything when accompanying other hunters on his land, so he doesn't consider that hunting.
