Green Mountain Poacher still at large; Fines mounting

(Jeffrey City, Wyo.) - Lander Game Warden Brady Frude had the pleasure of delivering a Stop Poaching reward check to a Wamsutter resident who called in a tip in 2014, according to a news release. Karrie Day called the Stop Poaching Hotline (1-877-WGFD-TIP) to report that she believed a local from Wamsutter had been either purchasing too many licenses or just flat out poaching deer. Following an investigation, Billy Reynolds was cited for intentionally taking an antlered deer in a closed season for a 6x5 buck and he was issued two citations for hunting on Green Mountain in Fremont County during a closed season for a doe and yearling buck. Reynolds received $10,040 in fines and restitution, a year in jail and twelve years of suspended hunting privileges. Reynolds, however, failed to report to the jail at his scheduled time and an arrest warrant was issued. The Wamsutter man also subsequently failed to appear in Fremont County Circut Court to answer for the two Green Mountain deer and another arrest warrant was issued. To this day, Reynolds has still not served his time or paid his fines. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department believes he is in either Colorado or Kansas with family. *Feature Photo: Karrie Day receives her certificate and check at the Desert Bar in Wamsutter.
