Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens are looking for tips on a deer poaching case that occurred late last week in the northern Bitterroot Valley.

FWP Game Warden, Lou Royce, reported that at least five mule deer were shot and abandoned between the late evening hours of Wednesday, May 30 and the early morning hours of Friday, June 1 on the MPG Ranch, north of Florence.

Wardens found four bucks and one doe and are investigating and processing evidence collected at the scene.

Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668) or contact Warden Royce at 406-240-0466. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 for providing information that leads to a conviction.

My first thought was someone

My first thought was someone was hunting food, then I read the article. If those deer were left to rot with out taking the meat I hope the fish cops catch the those who did it and hang them out to dry. In Alaska wanton waste is one of the worst game violations you can get.
