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
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.
