Two deer were found Nov. 2, shot and left to waste in agricultural fields in the Keuterville-Ferdinand area.
The first deer, a whitetailed doe, was found off Agnew Road, near the intersection of Keuterville Road. She had been gut shot and left to waste in a stubble field. She appears to have been shot late on that Friday night, Nov. 1, or early morning that Saturday, Nov. 2. The meat was salvaged and donated to a local family.
The second deer, a 4x4 whitetailed buck, was found off Rolling Hills Road, about 3 miles outside Ferdinand. He was also gut shot and left to waste in a stubble field. He appears to have been shot in the same time frame as the doe.
A third deer was located on Nov. 10, off Hussman Mill Road, near the intersection of Keuterville Road. This whitetailed doe was also gut shot and left to waste in a pasture. She appeared to have been there for several days.
All three deer were highly visible from the roadway.
Fish and Game is seeking any information on these three deer. Individuals can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward of $300 per deer if the information leads to a citation.
