Division of Wildlife seeks information about Grand County poaching incident

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is looking for information about the poaching of a mature mule deer buck north of Kremmling early Saturday, Jan. 3.

The incident occurred in the Troublesome area along Grand County Road 2.

The buck was shot and severely wounded by the poacher, who then left the area. It suffered for several hours until it was spotted and reported to DOW officers, who euthanized the animal.



A cash reward is available through Operation Game Thief for information that leads to issuance of a citation or an arrest in this case. Anyone with information can contact the Division of Wildlife’s Hot Sulphur Springs office at (970) 725-6200 or provide an anonymous, toll-free tip through Operation Game Thief at (877) 265-6648.
