With the general big game seasons upon us in Montana, it's always nice when stories like these have a happy ending.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens let us know that, thanks to good people coming forward with tips, the individuals responsible for multiple mule deer killed in McCone County have been identified and interviewed.

Charges are pending, thanks to calls to 1-800-TIP-MONT. And while McCone County may not be in our back yard here in western Montana (county seat: Circle), it's still good to know some conscientious Montanans got on this and helped FWP.

General big seasons start Saturday! Good luck, hunters. Keep it safe. AND keep it legal!
