CO: Info sought in Teller County deer poaching

WOODLAND PARK, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking
for information about a dead buck deer found near the Turkey Rock
subdivision in Teller County. Hunters discovered the partially
hidden carcass of the deer off Forest Service Trail 717 in game
management unit 511.

“Due to the condition of the carcass, it’s likely that the deer was
killed during the first rifle season,” said District Wildlife
Manager Tonya Sharp. “First rifle season is an elk only season in
Colorado so we would like to hear from anyone who might know what
happened.”

Individuals with information can call Sharp at 719-227-5281.
Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call Operation Game Thief
toll-free at 1-877-265-6648. Tips can also be submitted via email
at game.thief@state.co.us.

Callers may be eligible to collect a reward if the information they
provide leads to a citation or an arrest.
