Officials search for poachers who killed deer, removed antlers near Killdeer

Wildlife officials are looking for the person or persons responsible for killing several deer and leaving them to rot northwest of Killdeer, according to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.

Bucks, both mule deer and whitetail, were shot Friday night and the antlers were removed with the meat left. Hunters in the area discovered the deer Saturday morning.

The Report All Poachers program is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those involved.

Those with information can call the RAP hotline at 800-472-2121 or contact District Game Warden Bill Schaller of Killdeer at 701-290-0495. Callers may remain anonymous.
