On October 20, 2017, Idaho Fish and Game conservation officers located a cow moose and a bull moose that had been shot near the 21-mile marker on the Aquarius road, hunt unit 10A in Clearwater County. The Aquarius road connects Elk River to the Grandad Bridge area.
The scene suggests that the moose were killed at different times but within a hundred yards of each other. Although the actual dates of the deaths are unknown, officers believe the moose were shot on or after October 10. Portions of the animals were taken and the antlers of the bull moose were left at the scene.
