(KSL News) A Utah man admitted today that he shot at other deer hunters last fall to scare them away from a downed deer.

Jesse "Buck" Buckley pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment. He faces up to a year in jail for the misdemeanor, but other felony charges were dropped.

Last October, Buckley denied shooting toward the other hunters in Wasatch County's Currant Creek Canyon, but witnesses told investigators he shot "dangerously" close to them.
