Hunters plead guilty to poaching on Idaho border

March 31, 2012

From KTVB.com

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Guilty pleas from a father and son for poaching two bull elk near the Nevada-Idaho line closed a yearlong investigation involving wildlife agencies from three states and high-tech forensics on frozen meat and blood splotches.
Larry and Marty Hall pleaded guilty March 19 to killing a bull elk without a tag. Each paid thousands of dollars in fines.
The case began Nov. 6, 2010, when game wardens say both men shot trophy-sized elk without a hunting tag and left one animal to rot.
Other hunters saw what happened and called authorities.
DNA analysis of frozen elk meat stored in household freezers and a blood sample lifted from a tire at Larry Hall's home in Colorado helped solve the case.
Three others involved pleaded to lesser offenses and also were fined.
