Eagle Island State Park, Idaho.
Last week someone illegally shot the below trophy mule deer.
It was shot after the season had ended and, as Idaho Department of Fish and Game Rob Brazie explained, was never recovered by the shooter. He said, “The evidence suggests that the buck was only wounded by the shot, and that it then ran off and died at this location.”
Brazie said in a statement, “I’m hopeful that someone will recognize the distinct antlers on this trophy buck and be able to provide us with additional information regarding this poaching case.”
Poachers are the scourge of wildlife and hunters!
Here’s hoping Idaho catches the person or persons responsible.
