BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho game wardens say five hunters from eastern Oregon are facing charges and potentially stiff fines for hunting deer in southwest Idaho before the season officially got underway. Idaho authorities announced the charges Tuesday — several weeks after setting up a sting operation that included planting a decoy deer. The hunters were cited Sept. 28 in the Succor Creek area in a remote corner of Owhyee County near the Idaho/Oregon border. Wardens say one of the hunters fired six shots at the decoy deer and citations were issued for killing a real deer out of season. Other charges include hunting without valid state licenses or without a valid deer tag. Wardens also seized the deer and two rifles. The suspects are expected to appear in court on Oct. 28.
