Two Magic Valley men plead guilty to poaching deer in NV
ELKO, Nev. (AP) _ Two Idaho men have been fined for poaching
deer in extreme northeastern Nevada.
Nevada Department of Wildlife officials say Donald Scarrow Jr.
of Jerome, Idaho, and Roger Sievers of Twin Falls, Idaho, did not
have a tag to hunt in a unit where they harvested two bucks, but
had a license to hunt in an adjoining unit.
Under a plea agreement, they pleaded guilty in late March to a
gross misdemeanor charge of unlawful possession of a big game
The men were ordered to forfeit the deer and their rifles, and
to each pay a $1,000 fine and $2,500 in civil penalties. They also
lose their hunting privileges for three years in Nevada.
Officials say it's up to hunters to know where they can legally
hunt with their tags.
