WA: Authorities nab 4 men in elk poaching cases

Authorities nab 4 men in elk poaching cases

October 14, 2009

BONNERS FERRY, Idaho -- The Idaho Department of Fish and Game says a series of hotline tips helped nab four men in elk poaching investigations in northern Idaho.

Agency enforcement officials say 56-year-old Roland Hall, a Bonners Ferry veterinarian, and his hunting partner, 32-year-old Dennis Liermann Jr., have each been charged with one felony count for illegally killing elk Sept. 5 near Priest Lake. The alleged crime occured one day before the start of archery season.

In a separate investigation, wardens say they charged Herman Naumann, 56, of Napavine, Wash., for shooting an elk in Shoshone County with a pistol during archery season. His hunting partner, Corey Wilson, 40, also of Napavine, was cited for putting his own tag on the elk.

The agency's regional conservation officer Craig Walker says citizen tips are key to enforcing state hunting rules and ethics.

If convicted, all four face fines and the potential loss of hunting privileges.
