REXBURG, Idaho -

An Eastern Idaho man has been charged with pointing a firearm at a fish and game officer and shooting wildlife illegally.

Authorities say Seth Mills of Driggs pointed a shotgun at Idaho Fish and Game officer Lauren Wendt in November during her investigation into illegal hunting activity. Mills was also charged with two wildlife violations, including hunting migratory birds protected under federal law without a license.

The Rexburg Standard Journal reports at least one other eastern Idaho hunter has been charged in a separate poaching case.

James Fullmer of Tetonia is accused of illegally trapping and killing a gray wolf. Investigators say he trapped the wolf out of season and used illegal game parts as bait. He also faces a charge of hunting the species without a license.
