Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens are looking for information about a white-tailed deer buck that was killed near Bridger on March 26.
Warden Courtney Tyree said someone shot the deer on South Dry Creek near Bridger, then left it to waste in a field.
Montana’s deer-hunting season was closed at the time. In addition, Montana law makes wanton waste of game meat a crime. Anyone with information about the crimes is encouraged to call Tyree at 406-247-2940 or FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (800-847-6668). The TIP-MONT program is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to a conviction in the case.
