ST. ANTHONY — The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is seeking information about a poacher who left a whitetail buck to waste in Fremont County.

Conservation Officers discovered the deer shot and left to waste south of the Egin-Hamer Road between Quayles Lake and Nine Mile Knoll in Fremont County, Fish and Game spokesman James Brower said in a news release. Officials report someone took the head of the deer off the animal while leaving the rest of the carcass to rot.

Brower said Fish and Game believe someone killed the deer around Dec. 19. Officers collected bullet and footprint evidence at the scene of the dead deer.

Anyone with information that could help solve the case is asked to call the Upper Snake Regional Office (208) 525-7290, the Citizens Against Poaching hotline (800) 632-5999 or fill out an online form.

“Callers can remain anonymous and a reward is available for information that leads to a citation in the case,” Brower said.
