Public’s Help Sought in Big Game Poaching Cases

Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding two suspected poaching cases in the Garden Valley/Lowman area. Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in both cases and callers can remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day.

Fish and Game conservation officer Corey Taylor reported that sometime during the evening of October 20th, a spike elk was shot and left to waste on the Terrace Lakes Golf Course near Crouch. The following evening around 5:00pm, a mule deer doe was shot and left to waste in the Rock Creek drainage near Lowman, Idaho. A witness to this suspected poaching incident reported seeing a late 90s white Chevrolet pickup with 2C plates leaving the area around the time of the incident.

Evidence was collected at both scenes, but Taylor hopes to learn more about these cases from an eyewitness or others who have knowledge of these incidents. “I am very interested in visiting with anyone who has information regarding these suspected poaching cases,” Taylor noted.

In addition to the CAP hotline, persons with information regarding this case may also contact the Fish and Game Nampa office at 208-465-8465 weekdays and Idaho State Police at 208-846-7550 on weekends.
