Moose poacher receives jail term

A Genesee, Idaho, man convicted of poaching a bull moose lost his hunting privileges and will spend 45 days in jail.

Mitchell Sisler, 22, was sentenced last week on the felony charge of poaching. Sisler was one of two defendants convicted of the crime and jointly fined $10,000. Another Genesee resident, Roy Wallace, pleaded guilty earlier.

In October 2008, officers received a tip that the head and antlers of the moose had been hidden under a bridge. The officers linked Sisler and Wallace to the crime. Both men pleaded guilty to shooting the moose from the road without a tag and leaving most of the meat to rot.

Sisler also was sentenced to five years probation and had his hunting privileges revoked for life. But the court retained jurisdiction over his hunting privileges, which could be reinstated later.
