SHERIDAN — A man was convicted of extensive poaching in the Bighorn Mountains Tuesday, making it his third county in Wyoming to be convicted of similar crimes.

Sheridan County Circuit Court Judge Shelley Cundiff sentenced Russell Vick, 56, to one year of imprisonment at the Sheridan County Detention Center and a total of $70,000 in fines and restitution for unlawfully taking three antlered moose and one big game animal, a cow moose, between the years of 2007 and 2011 in the Bighorn National Forest in Sheridan County.

All that poaching, and only a year in the slammer, and a paltry $70.000?? I'd vote for at least 5 years and a quarter million.


Guess he had a friend in the cable county court who dismissed the charges that should have landed him in the state pen .


Campbell county court


Who was the Campbell county court judge who dismissed the charges? They should be investigated
