Bull elk shot, left to waste in Bears Paw Mountains

Elk poached

Game wardens are seeking information from the public about the poaching of a bull elk in the Bears Paw Mountains.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens are seeking information from the public about the poaching of a bull elk along Warrick Road in the Bears Paw Mountains.

Warden Andy Matakis said the bull elk was found on private land approximately 5.5 miles west of Warrick. The elk was likely shot on Dec. 29 or 30. Nothing was taken from the elk and the entire carcass was left to waste in the field.

“The season for hunting bull elk in Hunting District 690 ended five weeks ago,” Matakis said. “This is a popular area where it is difficult to draw a permit. We have had three bull elk killed and wasted this fall in the Bears Paws, which takes away hunting opportunities for someone in the future.”

Anyone with information about the crime is encouraged to call Matakis directly at 406-262-2407 or FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-847-6668.
