JACKSON, Wyoming — A Circuit Court judge has rejected a plea agreement for a man accused of killing a trophy deer in a Jackson Hole residential neighborhood.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (http://bit.ly/23KY5QQ) that 9th Circuit Judge James Radda ruled Wednesday that 29-year-old Travis Gros would have to pay more than a $250 fine and $40 court cost.
Wyoming Game and Fish Department warden Jon Stephens recommended $1,060 in fines and a three-year loss of hunting privileges.
Gros was cited in October for reckless endangerment, trespassing, failure to tag big game and wasting or abandoning big game. He is accused of gunning down a trophy buck in someone's yard while they were at home.
Without the plea deal, proceedings against Gros will continue at a Feb. 22 hearing.
