Fish and Game Looking for Information on Wasted Buck

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is looking for any information regarding a large white-tailed buck that was found shot with only the head removed.

Clearwater Region officers responded to a call from an individual who found the headless white tailed buck left to rot in a canola field along the German Settlement Road near Gifford. The deer was probably shot on October 25 or 26.

"Judging by the size of the carcass, the deer likely sported a large set of antlers," said Dave Beaver, senior conservation officer.

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Lewiston Fish and Game office at 208-799-5010 or the Citizens Against Poaching hotline 1-800-632-5999. The line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
