Elk Hunter Using Wrong Map Cited For Illegally Taking Elk In Grand Teton National Park

September 29, 2011

Road maps can be great to navigate by, but don't use them when hunting. An Oregon man discovered that the hard way when he was cited by Grand Teton National Park officials for taking an elk inside the park boundaries.

Rangers responded to two reports of possible illegal hunting in the park earlier this week on the first day of elk season on the adjoining Bridger-Teton National Forest. The first report notified rangers that a hunter on a guided trip killed an elk sometime between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
north of the Bailey Creek road, which lies within the park. Rangers, however, determined that the animal was killed legally on the Bridger-Teton National Forest and outside of the park's boundary.

Later that day, though, they cited Dane Clark, 49, of Pineville, Oregon, with a mandatory appearance for the taking of wildlife in the park. Rangers received a report at approximately 6 p.m. of the incident from a hunting guide service. They reported that a hunter was removing a dead elk from the Arizona Creek trail inside Grand Teton.
