Bull moose yearling poached; IDFG seeks information

Idaho Conservation Officers and local sportsmen are asking for your help in solving the unlawful killing of a yearling bull moose that occurred on the evening of July 2, near Camp 60 on Washington Creek. Officers believe there is a chance the moose may have been shot using artificial light. The moose was found on the Deadhorse Saddle Road about ½ mile north of Camp 60. Evidence collected at the scene indicates that the young bull moose may have been shot with a shotgun. No meat or other parts were taken from the animal.

“I checked a trophy bull moose in this same drainage for a sportsman three years ago. Now here is a young bull stolen from sportsmen that will never be able to provide that same opportunity for someone else,” said Senior Conservation Officer Dave Beaver. “I am hopeful that someone will come forward with information that will help us catch the violator(s). Any information is helpful”.

If you have information that could lead to the apprehension of the person(s) responsible you may be eligible for a cash reward from Citizens Against Poaching. You can remain anonymous.

Contact the Citizens Against Poaching Hotline at 1-800-632-5999 or IDFG Officer Dave Beaver at 208-791-5118.
