Speaking of poaching and jail time, here’s the latest in the Darner case:
Kirt Darner, celebrated Colorado big-game hunter, noted guide, and author of numerous books on trophy hunting, was indicted last year–along with his wife, Paula—for drugging and transporting four wild elk, three of which were owned by the state. According to this Independent article, the Darners’ trial is expected to begin on the 23rd of next month. If convicted of all charges, the guide could face maximum penalties of up to 33 years in prison. His wife could get up to 24 years.
