We need your help to stop poaching in South Eastern Idaho. On December 30, 2002, a twenty-six inch, 5 x 5 trophy mule deer was poached in the Arbon Valley of Bannock County. This beautiful mule deer buck gross scored 165 3/8 points by Boon and Crockett standards.

Hunters who worked long and hard in pursuit of a mule deer buck this last fall should be angry and disgusted. Angry that someone would be so selfish and self-absorbed, as to steal a vulnerable, trophy buck from winter range. Disgusted that after stealing it, the poachers left it to waste.

People often ask their fish and game officers if poaching is still a problem. It is. Fish and Game Officers need the assistance of the Idaho citizen to police their own ranks. Assist us by providing information, and we will do the rest. Confidentiality is held to the highest degree. Call us, and provide the information. Your name will not be released, and you will remain anonymous.

A Citizens Against Poaching reward of $500.00 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of suspect(s) involved. Call 1-800-632-5999.
