NAMPA -- A Nampa man has been stripped of his hunting privileges for
life for wasteful destruction of a trophy bull moose.
Sixty-five-year-old Farrell Johnson pleaded guilty last month to the
misdemeanor charge in an Idaho County court.
Prosecutors said Johnson had a valid permit when he shot the bull
moose last November, but he violated the law when he left all but about
20 pounds of meat from the moose to rot.
Moose generally yield several hundred pounds of meat.
