Large 6×7 buck deer poached in Millard County
Millard County — DWR conservation officers are investigating the illegal killing and waste of a mature 6×7 buck deer. The deer was found east of Holden, in the Maple Hollow area of Millard County.
It was killed with a high-powered rifle and then left to waste just off the side of the road. Investigating officers believe the buck was killed in mid-November, when there were no open hunts in the area.
Because of its size, the buck is legally defined as a trophy animal under Utah state law, with a minimum restitution value of $8,000.
Conservation officers are asking the public for help identifying the individual(s) responsible for the illegal killing and waste of this animal. If you have any information about this crime — or any other wildlife violation — please call the Utah Turn-in-a-Poacher (UTIP) hotline at 1-800-662-3337.
A monetary reward or general deer permit may be given to anyone who provides information leading to the successful prosecution of those responsible for this crime. Requests for confidentiality will be honored.
