A Dayton man has lost his hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for three years after Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks investigators discovered multiple game violations.
According to FWP Michael Filipek pleaded guilty to possessing bighorn sheep horns and illegally killing a mountain lion and a bobcat. He will also be banned from Wild Horse Island in Flathead Lake for three years.
In March 2015 Warden Sgt. Nathan Reiner and Polson Game Warden Ron Howell investigated the killing of a bighorn ram and determined that Filipek had moved the horns out of sight. It is illegal to pick up bighorn horns in the state of Montana. The sheep is believed to have been killed by a mountain lion. The horns were allegedly of “world class caliber.
Filipek’s home was searched and officers found that he was unlawfully in possession of a mountain lion and bobcat. He has to pay $1,200 in fines and fees.
