One of Alaska's best known big-game guides has been busted in
connection with a moose hunt gone bad near Icy Cape, south of Cordova.
Master Guide Vern Humble of Anchorage is accused of helping business
partner Garrett Wayne Cox, a fellow guide, cover up the shooting of an
under-size moose in Alaska Game Management Unit 6A, about 175 miles
south of the state's largest city. As Alaska State Troopers tell the
story, Cox was with Minnesota hunter Ronald Lehner when he shot a
sub-legal bull moose.
Instead of reporting the illegal take, troopers said, Cox claimed the
moose was shot in Alaska Game Management Unit 5A far to the south. It is
legal for a hunter to shoot any bull moose found in that area.
