Father and Two Sons Sell Illegal Hunts on Craigslist
Craigslist was the selling venue that three men from Douglas County, Colorado used to offer their hunting services. The Morrow family from Castle Rock, offered hunts for trophy elk and deer without a license, charging fees up to $3500 and an additional $2500 for a kill fee if a trophy animal was taken. The father and his sons, the Morrows, would purchase residential hunting licenses. They would then solicit clients, who wanted a trophy hunt in Colorado.
During the hunt, clients were accompanied by a member of the Morrow family who had a legal hunting license. The client would be offered an opportunity to kill an animal, which the Morrows would then falsely claim was killed by one of them. Gary Morrow admitted to the investigator that the men knew that what they were doing was illegal. Under Colorado law, only a legal license holder may shoot a game animal.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials said Monday that Zachary Morrow was sentenced to two years' probation and fined nearly $22,000. Gary Morrow and Jacob Morrow were placed on two years' probation and fined more than $9,000. From Colorado DOW.
