A man who told wildlife investigators he lived in Cora, Wyoming did not spend enough time in Wyoming to qualify for many years of obtaining resident deer and elk licenses here. Consequently, Craig Hunt of Morgan, Utah was charged September 16th with 21 high misdemeanor counts of swearing in false statements for many years to Wyoming Game and Fish that he was a Cora resident.
Hunt is charged with false statements for 13 resident elk licenses from 2008 through 2020 and eight resident deer licenses from 2009 to 2016.
Game and Fish Warden Herb Haley said he received an anonymous tip in 2019 that Hunt lived and worked in Morgan, Utah, but used his parents’ post office address to apply for the licenses.
Hunt is to be arraigned today in Sublette County Circuit Court for and could face up to 21 years in jail & $210,000 in fines for the multiple infractions.
