Public's Help Sought in Triple Deer Poaching Case

Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding the Christmas break poaching of three mule deer bucks in the Sagebrush Hill area just northeast of Weiser.

Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day.

Fish and Game conservation officer Zac Sedlmayr investigated the incident and found the three headless bucks piled together on Sagebrush Hill, also known as Chicken Hill. No other portions of any of the deer had been removed.

Evidence was collected at the scene, but Sedlmayr hopes to learn more about the case from an eyewitness or others who have knowledge of the poaching incident. “I am very interested in visiting with anyone who has information regarding this case,” Sedlmayr noted.

In addition to the CAP hotline, persons with information regarding this case may contact Sedlmayr direct at 208-940-2735 or Fish and Game district conservation officer Mark Sands at 208-989-9322. Persons may also call the Fish and Game Nampa office at 208-465-8465 weekdays and Idaho State Police at 208-846-7550 on weekends.
