Buck in velvet

A mule deer buck with its antlers in velvet moves cautiously away from visitors entering the Seven Blackfoot WSA. Deer and elk hunters are probably the main visitors to the remote region.

MEDICINE BOW, Wyo. — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is investigating two cases of poaching in southeast Wyoming.

On Oct. 20, Medicine Bow Game Warden Dylan Bergman was notified of a buck mule deer that had been shot from the road on deeded land. The suspects were driving a light silver or white newer Ford F150 pickup truck, with a full sized 4-door cab and a short bed.

The suspects shot the deer with a .270 Winchester rifle while standing on the road near the back of their truck. They fled when they saw the landowner approaching.

In a separate incident, a bull elk was shot and abandoned sometime between 5:30 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on Sunday on Highway 34 near Wheatland. The elk was shot two times but no meat was taken.
