Three whitetailed deer found shot and left to waste near Keuterville/Ferdinand on Nov. 2

On Saturday, November 2, 2019 two deer were found shot and left to waste in agricultural fields in the Keuterville/Ferdinand area.

The first deer, a white tail doe, was found off Agnew Rd, near the intersection of Keuterville Rd. She had been gut shot and left to waste in a stubble field. She appears to have been shot late night on Friday, November 1 or early morning Saturday, November 2. The meat was salvaged and donated to a local family.

The second deer, a 4x4 white tail buck, was found off Rolling Hills Rd, about 3 miles outside Ferdinand. He was also gut shot and left to waste in a stubble field. He appears to have been shot in the same time frame as the doe.

A third deer was located on November 10, 2019 off Hussman Mill Rd, near the intersection of Keuterville Rd. The white tail doe was also gut shot and left to waste in a pasture. She appears to have been there for several days.

All three deer were highly visible from the roadway.

Fish and Game is seeking any information on these three deer. Individuals can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward of $300 per deer if the information leads to a citation.
