gobroncos 5 years, 10 months ago on DA files vehicular homicide charge

Unfortunately our district voted her in...Miss Stewart was aware of the injustices and the cover ups in our DA's office. She was our only hope of rectifying some of the corruption within. Tom uncovered a lot of dirt but the news media will always protect the office as well. So as you said, we are screwed.

Hmmm...interesting that the DA can press homicide charges in a vehicle causing death. Ms. Roesink certainly didn't do this when my brother was killed by a meth drive. Guess it is who you are not what the law really is. Absolutely unreal. Maybe Bonnie's predecessor can do better.

This is all old news....he was found guilty by a jury of peers. He has the right to appeal but he has to face the fact that he was found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt for some of the felonies.

gobroncos 6 years, 3 months ago on Verdict reached in Culverwell trial

Rodney made his choice to pull the trigger mutilple times. Nobody made him do it. Now the jury made their deicision which undoubtedly was a very difficult one. However, it is our country's process to prove innocent beyond a reasonable doubt. Well the jury found him guilty of breaking the law. Now it is time for Rodney to face the reprecussions of HIS actions. I don't know about the rest of the posters on this site but I'm really sick of hearing about the DOW did this and the DOW did that from his attorney. If Rodney would have taken the plea agreement he would not be in the hot seat that he chose to be in. It's unfortunate that his family has to suffer the consequences because of his poor judgement. It's time to move on....as the old saying goes "we reap what we sow". Sorry, but I'm over it he broke the law.

I'll second that . The ranchers won't even consider letting a local on their property to hunt a cow. It might scare off those that have horns on their head. You know those bring a high price.

It is so hypocritical, they want the elk on their property when it is worth thousands of dollars but now that they are a nuisance they are crying wolf. I'm speaking specifically of this case.

gobroncos 6 years, 3 months ago on Culverwell takes the stand

The charges against Rodney are poaching wildlife. You are probably right that he did not exhaust all of his efforts. BUT he sent the email to the DOW in June of 2007. That was 6 months before winter hit. It was another 2 to 3 months before winter became very harsh. From my understanding Rodney said you will do this or else (in June). Was that not premditated? Was that an act of I'll show you? It only became an issue of Rodney protecting his property when he hired a big attorney. Big name ranchers passed the hat for collections to protect/hire an attorney for another big name rancher. We need to get passed the good ole boy and see it for what the charges really are which is poaching. Poaching is illegal. Forget the snow, forget the hay panels, forget the fences, forget the starving elk. He is being charged for an illegal crime. The number of ethical ranchers that fed the elk and didn't squawk about it far out way Rodney the good ole boy. I know of ranchers in the Hamilton area that called the DOW because their livestock was being harassed by a bull elk. You know what, the DOW did their job and shot the animal. I'm a hunter, a small rancher and I'm sorry I don't buy his b.s. story of the elk was charging him so he ran over it with a tractor. I'm sure he was safe in the cab many feet above the animal when it was chased down. He shot at a calf and oh, no accidently shot a bull. Oh, and shot another when when it was stuck in the fence. If they were all stuck in the fence and/or weak how in the world could they be ravaging his hay stacks lete alone charging him. If it was that bad I sure in the heck would have called with a phone instead of communicating with a computer via email. Or got on my truck and driven to town and visited the DOW, the SO or the BLM. Last time I looked there was a land line phone at the Cuverwell ranch. Still in the white pages today. On the same note, I saw many elk on my way into town that were hung up or starving. You know people that is what they make phones for us to call 824-6501 and report it. Every time, the authorities whether it be BLM, DOW or the sheriff's office handled the situation. Take the law into your own hands, get caught, and their is always a price to pay. Urgghhhhh.......this is such a crock. Glad I'm not a good ole' boy. My conscious couldn't live with it.

It is the DOW's responsibility to manage the animals. Not give them birth control. They can't control the number of elk that are killed. There has been too many warm seasons with elk hunting for several years. I don't care how many licenses you issue. If the elk don't come out of the high country they will never get their projected kill rate. We have had very mild winters and therefore high numbers in calves. The elk are not migrating as far west in the winters so the park in a ranchers field. The DOW has done their job in managing the herds. It is mother nature who has made the hunting seasons difficult with mild weather. It is a sad thing but if mother nature decides to kill off some of the population of elk with starvation then we shouldn't mess with it. I don't like seeing it either but if you run out and feed them then we will have more of a population overload of elk. Rodney is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. I agree a good attorney should not be able to pick apart so called mistakes that they law enforcement didn't do their job perfect. If the evidence presents itself that he shot them then he shot them. It is not the DOW on trial it is Rodney period. A big $$$ lawyer is trying to overturn the case and that isn't right. He admitted to shooting the elk. He should be ashamed as a rancher, a hunter and a citizen of Moffat County for being unethical.
