F&G employee cited

Pocatello resident and Idaho Fish and Game employee Harry Morse has been cited for failure to tag a mule deer and exceeding his limit. Morse said that after hunting with friends last October on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, his best friend's son wounded a deer about 250 yards away but was out of shells and the animal was about to get away. He said he shot and believes he hit the deer to bring it down in order to prevent wasteage. He has been ordered to serve 40 hours community service and has paid almost $600 in fines.
