MT: Illegal Hunting and Outfitting Case Nets Multiple Defendants

November 9, 2012

From FWP.MT.gov

Several years of investigative efforts by state officials in Montana, Pennsylvania and Mississippi have resulted in six men being convicted on wildlife-related criminal charges in Phillips County Justice Court.
 
Through help from wardens in Mississippi and Pennsylvania and a search warrant executed on Tabb Huntley’s residence, a number of taxidermy mounts of illegally harvested mule deer and white-tailed deer were seized and Huntley and five non-resident hunters were charged, Paulsen said.
 
The following misdemeanor convictions and penalties were entered:
 
Huntley pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful possession of a game animal and two counts of acting as outfitter or guide without a license. He paid $1,000 in fines and $3,500 in restitution and lost his hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for four years.
