Teton Valley Wardens Kept Busy

February 14, 2013 State of Idaho, Teton County, Teton Valley No Comments

It has been a busy month already for game wardens in Teton Valley, Idaho.  Conservation officers in the Teton Basin have recently been dealing with violations ranging from illegal trapping and illegal wolf hunting, to the illegal taking of a trophy mule deer. While  general seasons exist for legal wolf hunting in the Teton Basin, conservation officers have recently completed a case where an individual was not only cited for illegal trapping, but also for hunting a gray wolf without a tag and possession of an unlawfully taken gray wolf.  While the wolf incident occurred on December 31st, James D. Fullmer of Tetonia, Idaho, confessed to conservation officers one month later that he had taken a gray wolf near Squirrel Creek in Fremont County, without a tag. Officers are also concluding an investigation regarding the illegal taking of a mule deer buck from Teton Canyon.  A Boone & Crockett scorer gave the buck a green score of 181 2/8”, meaning that officers were able to cite Ben Brown of Tetonia with illegal taking of a trophy animal. Jacob Knight of Park Valley, Utah, was cited in connection with that incident.
