kid ban for life to hunt, fish or trap

Colton LappEvery kid makes stupid mistakes; that’s just part of growing up. It’s what we choose to do after making those mistakes as kids that determines how we’ll turn out. If we learn from those mistakes and correct our own errors, then we’re heading down the right path.

But if you choose to take life advice from 19-year-old Colton Lapp, you might as well just burn your hunting license and camo, then hand your bows, rifles and shotguns over to whoever will take them.

According to the Northern Wyoming Daily News, Lapp received 18- to 24-month prison sentences and forfeited his hunting, fishing and trapping privileges for life after he was convicted of three felony counts of taking antlered deer out of season, the first felony poaching case in Wyoming history.

This all comes after Lapp was convicted of two similar charges in 2010 — including illegally killing a 210-inch muley — for which he was placed on probation.
