Investigation underway after two doe mule deer are shot and left to waste
Idaho Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding the recent poaching of two doe mule deer shot and left to waste near Elk Bend, south of Salmon.
Both deer were discovered Aug. 28 next to a remote forest road. No meat was removed from either carcass.
