There are some poachers in San Juan County that the DWR needs some help stopping. They have shot several bulls, a couple of does and a nice buck.
The buck was found on March 10 by a Blanding resident who contacted DWR officers.
The poaching occurred southeast of the White Mesa Mill near the Black Mesa Butte Road. Although the deer was shot within the last few months, it did not die immediately. Evidence suggests that the deer may have lived two to four weeks before dying from its injuries.
The DWR is offering a reward of $1,500 for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for illegally killing the deer.
