Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking information on the poaching of four antelope south of Hingham.
FWP Warden Andy Matakis said the antelope — one buck, one doe, and two fawns — were shot on or around Dec. 23 and left to waste. The poaching took place on state land 9.5 miles south of Hingham on Hingham Road South.
“Antelope season closed nearly one and a half months ago,” Matakis said. “This is just a senseless act of killing and wasting game. There were four antelope shot and nothing was taken from any of the animals.”
Anyone with information about the crimes is encouraged to call Matakis directly at 406-262-2407 or FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668).
The 1-800-TIP-MONT program is a toll-free number where one can report violations of fish, wildlife or park regulations. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 for providing information that leads to a conviction.
