Hi,
Crappy way to introduce myself.
Im from Utah, where for every species the state issues one Sportsmans tag, (drawn), and one governors tag(sold at auction). These tags allow for super long season, an nearly state wide access. A lady from texas bought the Mtn Sheep gov tag. That tag has a closed area, the Nebo Unit. That unit rotates bi yearly with the sportsmans tag. The nebo was closed to the gov tag this year and open to sportsmans tag. Ms.Waldrip(gov tag holder) hired a guide, WLH. Long story short, they killed a possible state record, on a closed unit, POACHING. Because of the high dollar nature, and a well connected guide, and udwr being corrupt, she and the guide might walk. I read in a utah forum that no one in Texas will even know. So, thats why I dropped in today. The boys in Utah are pretty pissed as you can imagine. So, i wanted to let you guys know that when news spreads, or the mount starts traveling around, it was taken illegally. Proof of my story is actually found on Utah Division of Wildlife website, they published a letter acknowledging the incident.

Thanks for your time!!

How is a tag for a closed area up for sale? If it was closed, then why did she have a tag?
A link to your story would be helpful .

This is the type of story that needs links to official statements from public sources. Otherwise it devolves into a "he says, she says" deal.

There are plenty of Texans that do stuff that I don't care for, but I am just too busy to be shamed by all of them. Besides, all Texans would be working overtime on the reporting side if we reported every time some out of stater violated our hunting laws. Do you want to meet halfway and have a throw down or what? Count me out. I have too much to worry about on my own.

Utahhoss, I can't find any official statement concerning this matter from the Utah DWR on their website. I've found plenty of he said, she said on message boards.

I also noticed where one or two DWR employees provided incorrect info to the outfitter about what units the Governor's Tag was good for. I can understand that most would think the guide would have known better, but I also see where Utah declined to charge the guide and woman hunter.

So, was this willful poaching or was it case of a hunter and guide getting incorrect information from the Utah DWR? Please provide links.

It seems there might have been some confusion with the DWR on this one but either way the DA chose not to prosecute. The OP might want to look at this one again before he sets himself up for a lible suit. If she's wealthy enough to buy one of those tag's she's damn sure wealthy enough to hire a good lawyer.
