ID: Man arrested in illegal turkey hunting case

The Oregonian

An Idaho man was arrested on allegations of illegally hunting wild turkeys at night on a Snake River island near Ontario while boating and drinking.

Christopher C. Eversol, 20, of New Plymouth, Idaho, faces counts of hunting turkey during prohibited hours, being a minor in possession of alcohol, wasting wildlife and taking a hen turkey in a closed season in the April 28 incident, Oregon State Police said. He also was arrested on an outstanding Baker County warrant.

Police also charged Billy Judd Briggs, 30, of Payette, Idaho, with boating while under the influence of intoxicants, unsafe boating and furnishing alcohol to a minor in the incident.

A state trooper found the two men aboard a boat operating without navigation lights, said OSP Lt. Randy Scorby. Other troopers later discovered two dead hen turkeys on Starr Island that had been shot and left to waste, he said.
