The Division of Wildlife Resources is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for poaching a 6-point bull elk around the first of January at the mouth of San Arroyo Canyon in the Book Cliffs near the Colorado border.

The elk was shot and left to rot. The person who provides officers with key information in this case will be eligible to receive either a limited entry mature bull elk permit for the Book Cliffs or a monetary reward.

"This type of illegal activity on the Book Cliffs elk unit will limit sportsmen's opportunities to hunt these magnificent animals in the future," says Carl Gramlich, sergeant in the DWR's Southeastern Region.

Anyone with information on this or any other poaching incident is encouraged to call the DWR office in Price at (435) 636-0277. The caller's identity will be held in strict confidence or may remain anonymous. The DWR asks that the caller provide enough detail to help substantiate the validity of the information.
