Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 6 game wardens are seeking information regarding a mule deer buck that was shot and left about 16 miles south of Chinook sometime on or around Nov. 14.
The head was removed from the deer, and all the meat was left to waste. The incident occurred on private property about 1.5 miles east of the Chinook Clear Creek Road, near the junction with the Havre Clear Creek Road. The deer was found along what is locally referred to as the “gas well road,” which connects Clear Creek Road and Lloyd Road to the east. Only those with explicit private landowner permission can travel the trail.
Anyone with information about the crime is encouraged to call warden investigator Dirk Paulsen at 406-230-2277, or call FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668).
