The following is a news release from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

RIGGINS – On the morning of January 9th, two cow elk were shot out of season along the Big Salmon Road near Riggins.

This stretch of road receives a fair amount of morning traffic from sportsmen and the public alike. Much of the meat was salvaged prior to Fish & Game being notified.

It is probable that motorists or sportsmen noticed the shooter’s vehicle along the north bank of Salmon Road near Lake Creek Bridge and could offer information leading to the arrest of those responsible.

Anyone having information about these poaching incidents is encouraged to call the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at (800) 632-5999 or IDFG Senior Conservation Officer Ethan Bishop at (208) 799-5010. Anyone providing information can remain anonymous.
