Washington fish and wildlife officers are looking for tips that lead to the arrest of suspects who killed a trophy whitetail deer recently.
They’re not saying much about how big a buck it was, but think the animal could have been killed in late November southeast of Republic between Gibraltar Mountain and Sherman Pass.
Officer Nick Parkert says that anyone with information leading to a conviction could be eligible to receive up to a $500 reward or up to 10 bonus permit points.
Tips can be phoned into WDFW’s Spokane office, at (509) 892-1001, anonymously through the agency’s poaching hotline, 1 (877) 933-9847, or online at http://wdfw.wa.gov.
