Ex-tribal leaders to settle over musicians’ hunts – SFGate

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Three former Blackfeet tribal leaders have reached plea deals on federal charges they held illegal big-game hunts for country musicians and an outdoors television show’s hosts by allowing them to shoot elk, moose, deer and a black bear on the reservation without licenses.

Former Blackfeet Tribal Business Council members Jay St. Goddard and Jay Wells, and former tribal Fish and Game Director Gayle Skunkcap Jr. held the hunts in 2010 and 2011 for up-and-coming stars, including Josh Thompson and Justin Moore.
