Title: Montana wolves killed, shooters cited
Post by: DWBMontana on April 26, 2021, 09:34:15 AM
A couple guys hunting coyotes in Big Hole river country were cited for shooting wolves from a helicopter, which is illegal currently here in Montana.

Who ratted them out? Likely some granola eaters.

 Aircraft are a great idea as they don't leave tire tracks, nor do they trigger survelliance cameras positioned over gates or junctions. But they do have tail numbers, the exception being ultralights.

Looks like they both paid already, less than $500 each and no forfeiture of hunting priviledges. Overall a pretty easy let off considering the circumstances. No landowner permission and with the helicopter involved.

A Montana game warden told me it was cheaper to get a ticket in Montana than hunt legal in Washington.  :chuckle:
