3 Goshen Co. boys get probation for deer poaching

September 22, 2011

From Chron.com

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) Three Goshen County boys who admitted to shooting and abandoning mule deer will serve probation.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department said Thursday that the boys killed three deer on private land where they did not have permission to hunt. The boys were not named because they are minors. All three faced charges of waste of a big game animal, and hunting on private land without permission.
Two faced additional charges of taking over the limit of big game. The abandoned carcasses were discovered earlier this month.

The boys will serve six months' probation and lose hunting privileges for three years.

Also Thursday, the agency offered a $5,000 reward to find a poacher who shot an elk with a rifle during archery season near Glenrock.
