Case # SP21321451

On November 15, an elk hunter notified OSP Fish & Wildlife that what appeared to be a poached deer was located off Ginger Creek Road at the end of a spur on Bureau of Land Management land near a common OHV staging area.

“The deer had been shot multiple times in the neck and torso. Only one backstrap was taken and the rest of the deer was dumped off the end of a spur road and left to waste,” OSP said in a press release.

OSP estimated that the deer was shot sometime between November 8 and 13.
