IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — An Ashton man was driving along Fisherman’s Drive in Ashton on Oct. 20 when he saw a pheasant near the road. He stepped out of his car and shot the bird. It would have been a good shot if the man hadn’t broken Fish and Game rules in the process. The bird was on private property, and the shooter was still standing on the road when he fired the shot. A witness contacted law enforcement. An AP Member Exchange by Jonathan Hogan, Post Register. SENT: 700 words.
