Mpls. man found guilty of illegally hunting in Minn., Mont.
A Minneapolis man pled guilty this week to two counts of killing mule
deer bucks in Montana without a license.
Steven Range, 59, has been under investigation for several years.
In 2005, Range was cited for three counts of making false statements
to obtain a Montana residential hunting licenses. He was found guilty
and lost his privileges to hunt, fish and trap for 18-months in Montana
and 24 other states, including Minnesota.
Further investigation found that Range, other members of his family,
and friends had been hunting on a ranch in Powder River County Montana
since the 1960s.
For the recent offence, Range will pay a $1,070 fine and his hunting
and fishing privileges will be revoked for two years in Montana and
