Hunter makes grim impression on teen

HUNTING -- A Darby, Mont., man is going to court for illlegal hunting, but his worst offense might be leaving a teenage volunteer with a negative hunting memory she'll never forget.

According to The Ravalli Republic, prosecutors say James E. Robinson, 58, told a high school volunteer at a state game checkpoint that the buck was shot in an adjoining district. The girl became suspicious because there was no way to get to that district from the check station.

A few days later, Robinson allegedly yelled at the girl in an attempt to get her to change her story.

Robinson is charged with felony counts of unlawful possession of a game animal and intimidation.
