Man loses hunting privileges for a year after pleading guilty to poaching elk in Jackson Hole

March 16, 2011

JACKSON, Wyo. A 30-year-old man will have his hunting privileges suspended for 12 months after pleading guilty to poaching an elk in Jackson Hole.

State Game and Fish Department officials say Daniel "Garrett" Smith also will pay $6,200 in fines and serve one year of unsupervised probation.

Game Warden Bill Long tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that the case stems from a poaching that occurred in October 2009.

The agency says Smith was living nearby in Moose at the time. A ranch manager saw Smith dressed in camouflage and face paint with archery equipment near the dead elk.
