Man pleads guilty to Boise Foothills chukar poaching, woman has arrest warrant
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) —
One of two people who were spotted on a trail camera earlier this year illegally hunting chukar in the Boise Foothills has pleaded guilty.
According to Idaho court records, Dustin Dill, pleaded guilty on Monday in Ada County District court to two misdemeanors (violating Fish and Game rules and hunting without a license). He was sentenced to a year of probation and will be unable to hunt, fish or trap for two years.
Idaho Fish and Game told KBOI 2News that the other person seen on the trail cam, Shanelle Choumas, was charged earlier this year. According to Idaho court records, she currently has an arrest warrant from a separate case from 2016 for permitting animals to go without care.
Idaho Fish and Game posted the photo of the hunting duo on social media to help track down the pair after it says they were hunting chukar on the Boise River Wildlife Management area March 18, which was 46 days after the hunting season had closed.
