Two West Coast men are facing charges related to poaching prized deer in the Ross area.
Police received complaints of deer having been shot at two separate incidents during April.
In the first, a trophy stag was shot - its head was removed and the body left in a paddock meters from where tourists were camping.
The second incident saw two stags shot on a farm in Butlers.
One was totally removed while the other had its head removed, with the carcass left in scrub.
A 30-year-old man and a 56-year-old man have been charged with illegal hunting.
They'll appear in the Greymouth District Court late next month.
