Mack Long, regional supervisor for Montana Fish, Wildlife
and Parks in Missoula, was cited by his own employees over the weekend for
hunting big game on private property without permission.
Long opted not to contest the citation, paid the $135 bond
and surrendered the five-point bull elk he shot on land adjoining the ranch
where he had permission to hunt.
On Monday, Long issued a written statement via his office
in Missoula, saying: "This is very regrettable, and I am embarrassed."
