Six Arkansas residents have been arrested in connection with illegal hunting in Colorado and Arkansas, authorities said.

Daniel Ross, Hunter Ross and a youth, all of White County, were charged in connection with 115 game violations, including hunting wildlife in a closed season, hunting at night and transporting illegally taken wildlife, according to a news release Monday from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Investigation into the White County operation led to three arrests near Hector in Pope County. Kelly "Bubba" Samuels, Kirk Killins and Daron Killins were arrested on a total of 54 game violations, according to the news release. The charges include multiple counts of night hunting, hunting during a closed season and violation of big-game tagging requirements.

The investigation began in September, and search warrants were later served on several White County residences and Xtreme Taxidermy near Romance. Several items taken as evidence during the searches revealed a connection to the Pope County violations, according to the release.

The Arkansas commission, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service worked jointly in the investigation.
