JACKSON MAN CHARGED WITH POACHING 11 ELK

Friday, January 2, 2004

POWELL - A man has been charged with killing 11 elk northeast of Jackson in one of the worst poaching cases local Game and Fish Department wardens can remember.

Elliot Hudson, 20, of Jackson, faces up to 21 years in prison and jail if convicted of the one felony and 11 misdemeanors filed against him.

Hudson is accused of poaching 11 elk in the Gros Ventre River drainage Nov. 24. Witnesses reported the incident to Game and Fish wardens, who questioned Hudson with Jackson police at the scene.

Hudson allegedly told officers he had no guns, but police said they found two rifles in his Jeep Cherokee that matched bullets lodged in the elk.

Further evidence included a video allegedly filmed by Hudson.

Hudson was charged with felony property destruction and 11 misdemeanor counts of wanton destruction of a big game animal and taking big game animals during closed season.
