Photo detail

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game doesn’t catch every poacher, but because of their diligence, the man who shot and killed the pictured ram was sentenced to 30 days in jail in addition to fines, court costs and civil penalties of $10,000. Under the sentence handed down in district court Monday, June 6, Paul R. Cortez of Nampa included a lifetime loss of hunting privileges. Pictured are the officers who busted Cortez at a camp along the Salmon River last November: Dennis Brandt, Craig Mickelson, Brian Perkes and Roy Kinner.
