When he catches Claude Dallas doing that; he's about to arrest him when Claude kills him and the other warden with him.

Unique and intelligent film ..........
1 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Matt Salinger in a very understated performance, plays Claude Dallas, self proclaimed minimalist, who also happens to be a cold blooded killer. It's a fascinating conflict of beliefs regarding poaching that sets the story in motion. Is Claude Dallas simply defending his God given right to live off the land, by breaking the law with his out of season hunting? Confronted by two Idaho Game Wardens, Dallas, in what he believes is righteous anger, kills to protect his beliefs. The manhunt that follows is spearheaded by Rip Torn playing the local sheriff. His relentless pursuit is not an easy one however, because of the many sympathizers who aid Dallas along the way. This is an excellent, much overlooked, TV movie. - MERK
