A second hunter in less than two weeks was issued a citation for illegally hunting in Grand Teton National Park.  The incident involved an elk that had been shot about 40 yards over the park boundary inside the northern end of the park.  Rangers charged 51-year-old Wayne Boydstun of Layton, Utah last Thursday, with a mandatory appearance for the taking of wildlife in the park.  According to Park Spokesperson Jenny Anzelmo-Sarles, two rangers on a routine backcountry patrol near Mount Reid on the Arizona Creek Trail heard a gunshot just after 10:00 am.  While investigating the source, she says they encountered a hunting guide who reported that his client had shot a bull elk in the park. The guide was on his way up a hill to place a call notifying authorities of the incident when the rangers met him. The guide then took the investigating rangers to the location of the elk kill, and rangers determined the elk had been taken 40 yards inside of the park boundary. Anzelmo-Sarles says all the parties involved fully cooperated with rangers.  Slightly more than a week before, 49-year-old Dane Clark of Pineville, Oregon was cited for illegally taking an elk in the same general vicinity.
