The incident involved a spike elk that was killed in the area of the Bulls Fork road about three miles from Kepps Crossing. The individuals involved killed four elk. Two cows, a calf and a spike. They recovered all the meat that was required, but the problem was that they killed a spike in a cow only hunt.
