"Rewards make a difference," said ...

"Rewards make a difference," said Jon Heggen, chief of law enforcement for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. "And I don't know that anyone in Idaho wants to tolerate someone stealing their wildlife and then going and bragging about it."
The anonymous poacher mailed a letter and photographs to Fish and Game earlier this month claiming that the images of a freshly killed whitetail buck and a pronghorn antelope represented wildlife he had taken illegally.
"Here is a picture of the nice buck I poached up in northern Idaho this year," the letter said. The writer said he intended "to do all my Idaho hunting like this from now on" and suggested he might send a photograph of a turkey that he poached.
...
Heggen said the case is the first of its kind.
Conservation officers frequently encounter hunters who take game illegally simply because the opportunity - or the animal - presented itself, he said. And they know of hunters seeking to illegally take high-dollar, or trophy, animals with horns that can fetch large sums.
"But here's a guy who not only says he's poaching but he wants to brag about it," said Heggen.
The writer's motivations are unclear, he said. Idaho raised its fees for hunting licenses for out-of-state residents last year, causing Heggen to speculate that "Poacher X" might be irked by the increase.
"It's possible these animals aren't poached and that he's just taking a dig at us," Heggen said.

Jon Heggen, enforcement chief for the Idaho Department of Fish and game, encouraged motorbike and ATV riders to be sensitive to the fact that some people may be hunting on foot in the same area where they are riding their trail machine. "We want to remind hunters to stay on trails and be courteous to other users," Heggen said.

Jon Heggen, enforcement bureau chief with the Idaho Fish and Game Department, explained, "In 1998, a group of concerned sportsmen believed that stiffer penalties would create a bigger deterrent to poaching. Their work transformed into Senate Bill 1499 which passed into law that same year. One aspect of this new legislation was increasing civil penalties on trophy big game animals."
Idaho law actually cites Boone and Crockett standards as the official definition of "trophy" for several species, and states that the highest of the typical or non-typical scores shall be used to assess penalties.
"The 1998 law also established a felony violation when accumulated civil penalties surpass $1,000 within a 12-month period, so trophy status soon became a mechanism that helped elevate certain fish and game violations from misdemeanors to felonies," said Heggen.

Jon Heggen, chief of enforcement with Fish and Game in Boise, said he's never heard any other sportsman make the argument Rammell has chosen for his defense.
"Once you pick a zone, you are restricted to the zone which you have. It's printed right on the tags where they're good for and when," Heggen said.
Heggen said officials attempted to cite Rammell upon arriving at his home but Rammell "walked into his house and refused to answer."
...
We will pursue formal charges with the prosecutor," Heggen said. "It could be a number of different things."
Rammell reasons deer tags are good for anywhere in the state, and he sees no reason for elk tags to be any different.
