Davis County deer hunting convict released from jail pending appeal
Bloomfield, Iowa —
An Iowa man convicted of running a Davis County deer hunting scam has been released from jail.
A Davis County jury had previously found Wulf guilty of On-going Criminal Conduct.
Wulf was convicted of selling out-of-state hunters full-service deer hunts, and then failing to deliver the promised services.
On Monday, Wulf filed his notice of appeal, posted a $35,000 bond and was released pending the outcome of that appeal.
Wulf will also have a new attorney for his appeal.
James Underwood has withdrawn from the case and will be replaced by a public defender.
Wulf told the court before he was sentenced that he no longer wanted Underwood to represent him.
The next step in the case is a March 16 hearing to determine if Wulf's release on bond will come with any special provisions.
The appellate process itself could drag on for months or even years.
