Idaho hunter jailed for poaching celebrity buck

HUNTING -- A hunter who pleaded guilty to poaching a well-known and well-liked buck in Twin Falls last winter has been sentenced to jail.

The Times-News reports that Jacob Frederick Pool, 34, was sentenced Monday to 90 days in county jail and a therapeutic and educational program.

Pool pleaded guilty in October to a felony count of killing or wasting a trophy mule deer during a closed season and a reduced misdemeanor count of destructing or concealing evidence.

Following the 90 to 120-day retained jurisdiction – commonly known as a rider – a judge will decide to either release Pool on probation or send him to state prison for two to four years.
