Ya, I saw this too.

Ya, I saw this too.  Disappointing, disgusting, angry, just some of the feelings I have about how many poaching incidents we've heard about so far this year.  

Thanks for bringing to everyone's attention.

Very sad to see it go to

Very sad to see it go to waste.  I wonder if the person who poached it was scared off by some passing traffic or something.  Probably won't catch the person, but if they do, I hope they give them a little more than a slap on the wrist!  Trophy mule deer, or even a mule deer doe, it's unexcusable!!!

I agree with everyone above.

I agree with everyone above. Especially the anger part as it just seems to be getting worse. We just read about the one by parachute a couple of days ago and now this one shows up. This one was just killed for nothing but someones enjoyment. Hopefully they catch him but the chances are slim.

  Yes I saw this one too. 

 

Yes I saw this one too.  Disgusting!  One can only hope that the criminal/poacher is caught someday.  The good thing here is that the idiot was not able to take the antlers or any meat.  This could mean that maybe saw him/her and maybe there is still hope they are caught.

While hunting 1st rifle season I came across a CO DOW officer and he had a huge rack in the back of his truck bed that was a very nice trophy - unfortunately taken from a poached animal.  I have not seen a write up from that one though.

Anyhow - sickening that this stuff happens.  These people are not hunters for sure.
