Officers from the Division of Wildlife Resources and North Park Police Department recently concluded their investigation into the illegal killing of a well-known buck in North Logan City limits.

"Through our investigation we were able to determine that the buck, a large trophy deer, 29 inches wide, was shot in North Logan City limits while the suspect was trespassing," says DWR Conservation Officer Chris Schulze.

This was a violation of North Logan City ordinances for shooting in city limits, and because the buck was killed while the suspect was trespassing, the act was in violation of Utah state law as well.

"Our primary concern is always public health and safety. A valid hunting license does not authorize someone to shoot within cities which forbid the discharging of a weapon," Schulze adds.

DWR officers seized the rack from the suspect. The suspect now faces two misdemeanor charges: shooting within city limits and unlawful taking of wildlife while trespassing.

"This buck and this case have received a tremendous amount of interest and concern from local residents and, as always, we appreciate those who were concerned enough to do the right thing and come forward with information."

    I'm going to give the hunter the benefit of a doubt. In the KSL article they had a shot of the field of where the buck was taken. Putting myself in the hunter's boots, it looked like unincorporated county, not city. If you've ever looked closely at city boundaries, they zig-zag all over the place. Not only that, but they change from year-to-year as property is annexed. If you're not from N. Logan it would be difficult to keep track of it all. Second, the land did not appear to be posted, nor cultivated (by default cultivated land is assumed to be posted). At a minimum the trespassing charge should be dismissed.
