MT: Congressman's aide cited for illegal hunting

August 11, 2010

Obstruction charge dropped in Vogel poaching case

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say one charge has been dropped in the poaching case involving a top aide to U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg.

A trial in Randy Vogel's poaching case is set for Wednesday in Madison County.

Last week, a judge in the case dropped a charge of obstructing a peace officer. Vogel still faces charges of illegally harvesting a spike elk, killing more than one elk and waste of game.

The prominent Republican was appointed state director for the congressman on March 1. The next day, he was cited for poaching the previous hunting season and has been on voluntary unpaid leave since.

Authorities have lined up several witnesses in a case that could be tough to prove since Vogel says that after hunting season he sold the gun he was using.
