CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Three Goshen County boys who admitted to shooting
and abandoning mule deer will serve probation.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department said Thursday that the boys
killed three deer on private land where they did not have permission to
hunt. The boys were not named because they are minors. All three faced
charges of waste of a big game animal, and hunting on private land
Two faced additional charges of taking over the limit of big game. The
abandoned carcasses were discovered earlier this month.
The boys will serve six months' probation and lose hunting privileges
for three years.
Also Thursday, the agency offered a $5,000 reward to find a poacher
who shot an elk with a rifle during archery season near Glenrock.
