The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking information from the public about a poached doe mule deer that was found along the Green River Saturday.
The doe had been shot and left to waste along the east shore of the Green River across from the Pioneer Trails picnic ground on Oct. 2, according to WGF Game Warden Justin Dodd.
Dodd said it’s a highly trafficked area and WGF is hoping that someone might have seen something around that time.
General deer season in that region opened on Oct. 1, though it is not legal to shoot a doe nor is it common to find one left to waste, Dodd added.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Stop Poaching Hotline at 1-877-943-3847, texting a tip to 1-877-943-3847, by texting “WGFD” and message to TIP411 (847-411), reporting online, or by contacting Green River game warden Justin Dodd at (307) 875-3225 ext. 8609.
