Why Butch didn’t show up

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has been saying for two years that he wanted to be the first to bid on an Idaho wolf hunting tag, but today, when unlimited sales of the tags opened at Fish & Game offices around the state, at vendors and online, Otter didn't show. The reason: He was at Bruce Sweeney's funeral in Lewiston, which started at 11 a.m. "He was hoping to do that but he was in Lewiston," said Otter's spokesman, Jon Hanian. "So he didn't get an opportunity today, but as soon as his schedule permits, he will do that and that's still his plan. He would've gotten it today, but he went to the funeral."
