Theresa Vail, the tattooed beauty queen who hosted an Outdoor Channel adventure show, pleaded guilty this week to an illegal hunting charge in Alaska and received probation and a $750 fine.

Vail, an Army sergeant and former Miss Kansas, was charged with killing a grizzly bear without a state hunting tag in a May 2015 guided Alaska hunt, according to The Associated Press reported. She reportedly held one nonresident bear tag and shot a bear but, when she fired again to kill it, she accidentally killed a different female bear.

The incident was compounded when master guide Michael Wade Renfro, who also faces charges, flew a second tag to the site and had Vail sign and back-date it in an attempt to cover up the illegality of the second kill, the AP said.

Kevin Fitzgerald, Vail's attorney, told the AP that Vail felt guilty after the deception over the hunting tags and wanted to report the situation.

Vail hosts the OC's "Limitless with Theresa Vail," which features extreme challenges like a 26.2-mile trek in the Bataan Death March in New Mexico and climbing Wyoming's "Devil's Tower," according to the show's website.

Vail received extensive media coverage when she won the Miss Kansas title in 2013 and went to the Miss America pageant the next year. She was the first contestant to show her tattoos during the swimsuit competition, something that made headlines over her opinions on hunting, her military service, and the struggles in her life, Grandview Outdoors reported.
