Fish & Game Seeks Information On Elk Poaching Case

Hunters who have a permit for bull elk in unit 52A in October and November will unfortunately not have the opportunity to take a 7 x 7 point trophy class bull that was shot and left recently near Kimima. Conservation Officer Lee Garwood reported that on or about September 5 the animal was shot and left in unit 52A, in the southeast corner of Lincoln County, just north of Highway 24. The animal was discovered by farm laborers and reported to Fish and Game. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game needs help from the public in bringing these violators to justice. Anyone with information regarding this case can call Officer Garwood at 886-2556, Officer Duane VonBargen at 436-5278, or the Citizens Against Poaching Hotline 1-800-632-5999. Informants can remain totally anonymous and receive a reward if a citation is issued for this violation.
