HELENA - Eight Louisiana men have been charged with
a slew of hunting violations, including killing deer on private land
without proper licenses.
One of the men also was charged with illegally guiding
and outfitting hunts in Montana.
Game wardens say the hunters stopped at a game-check
station near Saco on Nov. 4, and wardens found seven of the deer
they shot had not been killed on the private land where the men were
permitted to hunt.
Two of the Louisiana hunters, who had nonresident licenses
to kill antlerless deer, had allegedly shot bucks using resident
licenses. They were charged with illegal tag transfer, said Warden
