A man hunting in Teton County with Arizona plates found himself running afoul of the law late last month.
Edward B. Hisey, 43, received four citations out of nine alleged violations of Wyoming hunting regulations.
Game Warden Bill Long alleges in court files that Hisey falsely claimed to be a Wyoming resident to get in-state tags for three elk, three deer and three black bears. He received citations for two each of the elk and deer.
Wyoming requirements to get a resident hunting license state that a person must “physically reside” in the state for at least the full year before getting a license. During that time, the person can’t also claim residency in another state.
Hisey is accused of having resident hunting licenses in Arizona at the same time he held his Wyoming license.
He claimed to have a permanent address in Wyoming, but Long found the address was a rental property, according to court files. Hisey retained Jackson lawyer Richard Mulligan to represent him. He entered a written not guilty plea earlier this month.
