Hunting guides face federal charges in SD

Josh Verges [email protected] 

Two hunting guides face federal charges for allegedly leading non-residents on elk, deer and pheasant hunts near Witten.

Manfred Fast Horse Jr. of Rosebud and Roger Dale Taylor of Elizabethton, Tenn. are accused of conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act.

Both men worked as guides for All About the Hunt, an outfitter near Witten. They were indicted last month.

Fast Horse is accused of selling his Rosebud Sioux Tribal elk hunting tag to an undercover agent and guiding officers and out-of-state customers on illegal hunts. Prosecutors say he then transported the animal carcasses across state lines.

Taylor is accused of leading several non-residents on a variety of hunts and participating in the conspiracy that let them use South Dakota licenses.

Kyle Moeller, the owner of All About the Hunt, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act and transporting wildlife across state lines. He was sentenced in December to six years probation and ordered to pay an $18,000 fine and $31,600 restitution.
