A baby elk calf takes a break from the warm spring weather as it shades under a tree. The Division of Wildlife Resources is currently looking for information regarding a poaching incident which involved a mature cow elk that took place last December or January. Any information regarding the incident should be forwarded to the division's office.

The Division of Wildlife Resources is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for illegally taking a bull elk on Danish Bench by the Huntington Power Plant in central Utah.

The bull was apparently shot during the antlerless elk hunt in December or January. The head and antlers were sawed off and the rest of the bull was left to rot.

Depending on the information received, the reward may be as high as $1,000 or a central mountains, Manti mature bull elk permit.

DWR conservation officer Kip Draper in Emery County is leading the investigation and is asking that anyone, having knowledge of this poaching incident, call him on his cell phone at 435-749-1492.

Information may also be submitted at the wildlife resources office in Price at 435-636-0260.

All information will be held in strict confidentiality, and the caller may remain anonymous.

"Please help us apprehend the poacher or poachers who have stolen a nice bull elk from sportsmen, who might have had the opportunity to hunt this animal next fall," Draper stated.
