Stimac will make his initial appearance before Magistrate Judge Leo I. Brisbois in U.S. District Court at a later date.

According to the allegations, on the evening of Sept. 1, Stimac, who is not an enrolled member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians, willfully, knowingly and without authorization or permission, entered the Red Lake Indian Reservation for the purposes of hunting a bear. Using a compound bow, Stimac shot and killed a large American black bear near the reservation’s garbage dump.

According to the allegations in the information, on Sept. 2, Stimac posed for photographs with the bear’s carcass and later shared the photographs on Facebook. Because of the bear’s large size, Stimac was unable to move the bear from the reservation, and instead removed the bear’s head and paws and harvested a small portion of the meat. Stimac left the remainder of the carcass on the reservation.

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians does not permit non-Indians to hunt bear, a clan animal, within the boundaries of the Red Lake Indian Reservation, due to the bear’s spiritual importance to the band.

If my memory serves me right, which it usually does, Stimac is a historical dirt-bag with a laundry list of transgressions.

I think he’s going to pay for this one, the red lakers are pretty tough on violators.

Oh boy, this might be his first run in with conservation officers, but hes definitely been in the wrong seat of a cruiser a time or three

The way I read it he was actually on the Rez. That’s pretty ballsy..... I wonder if he was with a red laker?? I wonder where he came up with the weight if he didn’t even move it??

About how most Bear hunters come up with the weight Josh

Straight up uneducated guess

True..... we weigh every one we get. It’s pretty funny how far off we can be. I saw 4 red lake wildlife officers in Warroad the other day , I’ll absolutely guarantee they collectively weighed over 800. Pretty bad looking hombres there.

4 at 800 is only 200 each ! Seen 4 would go 1200 no problem

Here's a functioning link.

I've had my own run in with Red Lake CO's. Not a pleasant experience.
