Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking information on a recently poached bull moose. The moose was killed approximately one mile up Moser Creek Road in the Hyalite drainage, south of Bozeman.

Christmas tree hunters discovered the carcass on Dec. 1 and reported it to FWP on Dec. 3.

When wardens investigated the area later on Dec. 3, they discovered that someone had removed the head since the carcass was first discovered on Dec. 1. The moose was likely killed a few days prior to Dec. 1.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to please contact FWP Region 3 Warden Justin Feddes 406-579-6267, or call 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668). Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to a conviction.
