(KSL News) A Wasatch County man is going to jail for shooting at hunters during last year's deer hunt.

It happened in Currant Creek Canyon last October. Jesse Buckley is accused of shooting near two other hunters because of a dispute over a downed deer.

At the time Buckley said it was a misunderstanding; but a judge disagrees, and today sentenced Buckley to 60 days in jail.

Buckley will then be on probation for three years, and he can't possess a firearm or hunt.

The men Buckley shot at say they were pinned down by the gunfire.

Vondell Clement said, "But when we yelled at the Buckleys, they just yelled back and told us to stay off their mountain, that we had no business being up there, and kept shooting."

Vondell Clement and his son Randy say the incident was so upsetting, they never plan to hunt again.
