Idaho Poachers Hit With $9600 Fine For Baiting Elk
According to the Spokesman Review three people were recently found guilty of baiting and poaching elk in Idaho's Boundary County. The Idaho Fish and Game department used photographs and nighttime operations to build a case against the poachers.
Following a baiting activity investigation on that started in December 2009, Idaho Fish and Game officers hid in the woods this month on the Bonners Ferry–area property of Richard Raine. The agents were able to photograph Raine’s daughter, Barbera Johnson of Sacramento, Calif., working with Robert Johnson of Sacramento to put out feed to lure elk.
