Oregon man ordered to pay $10,500 for illegal hunting in Montana

BILLINGS, Mont. A 31-year-old Oregon man has been ordered to pay $10,500 in fines and restitution for illegally killing and tagging a bull elk in southern Montana's Park County.
David "Bud" LaRoche, of Salem, also was sentenced to three years' probation Friday.
Prosecutors say LaRoche was a client of Richard "Dick" Weiner and his son, Richard "Matt" Weiner, both of Salem. The elder Weiner, who operates Oregon Outdoor Adventures, arranged for big game hunts in Park County, charging clients from $1,500 to $2,500.
Prosecutors say LaRoche killed the bull elk in 2009 when he didn't have a hunting license and that Dick Weiner sold LaRoche another client's license for $500. Hunting licenses are not transferrable.
The Weiners were previously ordered to pay a combined $80,000.
