Idaho Department of Fish and Game officials are seeking tips to help them nab poachers involved in killing two bull moose on or around Oct. 29. The bulls were killed within 25 yards of each other in French Gulch near Frost Peak in the Cataldo area.
The poacher or poachers took only the hind quarters of one moose. The remainder of the usable meat from this illegally taken moose was wasted. The entire second moose was left and wasted. Both were field dressed and the carcasses propped open as if the perpetrators were planning to return to retrieve more meat.
