IDFG investigating Doumecq, Joseph waste cases

Two mule deer does were found Sunday morning, Sept. 6, shot and left on the top of the Doumecq Grade.

“Apparently, two subjects shot the two deer and then left the area without trying to recover the deer they had just shot,” conservation officer Roy Kinner said. “Idaho Fish and Game officers would like further information about the persons responsible for the poaching incident.” Anyone with information can call Citizens Against Poaching at 1-800-632-5999, the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office at 983-1100, or Kinner at 983-8443.

“Recently there have been several incidents of poached wildlife across the region, including a cow elk shot and left on private property on the Joseph Plains and two other cow elk shot and left in the Ferdinand area,” Kinner added. “Four individuals were apprehended night hunting and killing a closed season deer in the Kamiah area. It is unknown if some of these other incidents were associated with these poachers. There are more incidents but this is only what has been found in the last week in the Grangeville area.”
