Christopher N. Brittain, 33, has pleaded guilty to three counts of hunting without a license, three counts of unlawful possession and transportation of a game animal, two counts of failure to obtain landowner permission to hunt, two counts of waste of a game animal and one count of hunting or killing over the limit.

An investigation determined Brittain had killed a mule deer doe and 3-by-3 mule deer buck in Sheridan County. Later, he killed a 4-by-4 mule deer buck in McCone County. The carcasses of all three deer were then discarded.

Brittain was charged and paid fines in three counties for the violations; Sheridan, McCone and Valley. He was ordered to pay a total of $8,360 in fines, $1,300 in restitution, and has lost his privileges to hunt, fish, and trap in Montana for eight years. He also lost his privileges to hunt, fish, and trap for 80 years in all 44 states that are members of the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact.
