By Dave Kell Staff Writer A Butte County bear hunter has been held to answer on an allegation that he possessed a firearm after being convicted of a felony. Robert J. Sage, 70, was ar- raigned for trial on the two counts during an April 20 court appearance in front of Judge Alan H. Thieler. The ruling sets the stage for a jury trial sometime in the fu- ture. A pretrial conference is scheduled June 15. Thieler's ruling was based in part on the testimony of Terry Hodges, a fish and game investi- gator. Hodges testified at a Febru- ary hearing that Sage possessed a gun during an Oct. 10 en- counter between the two in the Granite Basin area of Plumas County. Sage is barred from owning and possessing firearms under the terms of his 2000 felony con- spiracy conviction in Plumas County, Under the terms of last year's conviction, which stemmed from a 1997 Bucks Lake hunting expedition, Sage was ordered to stop bear hunting for four years. Sage also was fined $13,700. He is appealing the terms of his punishment, but the convic- tion still bars him from possess- ing a firearm even if the pun- ishment is lessened on appeal. Hodges also testified that, when he tried to arrest him, Sage resisted. Sage took what Hodges de- scribed "as a rather threaten- ing stance." Hodges said he ended up spraying Sage in the face with Pepper Spray prior to taking him into custody. According to court records, Sage has killed nearly three dozen bears in recent years and has allegedly used legally for- bidden bait piles on 40 occa- sions. Gall bladders from bears can fetch $500 from Asian clients who like them for gourmet meals and use them for healing illnesses. !
