    The scumbag got off easy! Didn’t even pull his license…

    So the prosecutor cut a deal with the Outfitters Board? Sounds twisted. The WY Outfitters’ Board is a 7 person board. The board has 4 outfitters, 1 Game and Fish employee, and 2 public at large members appointed by the Governor. The 2 “at-large” seats cannot be held by a paid guide, otherwise anyone beholden to the Outfitter industry (including family members, apparently) can be appointed.

    Are you serious? How does this guy keep his license?

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
