Montana FWP Investigating Several Big Game Poaching Cases
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks are seeking information on several big game poaching cases that occurred in the Gallatin Valley recently. These include the following:
- A spike bull elk east of Norris
- A white-tailed deer buck near Three Forks
- A white-tailed deer buck near Four Corners
These animals were left and the meat was unfit for human consumption. Wardens believe the elk was shot on November 23rd and was abandoned on Montana State University’s Red Bluff Ranch, north of State Highway 84 and east of Norris
The Three Forks deer is believed to be shot from a road, possibly at night between November 24th and 27th. The Four Corners deer was shot with a rifle inside Hunting District 309, which is a weapons-restricted area, on November 30th.
If you have information on any of these cases, please call Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks at 1-800-TIP-MONT (847-6668).
