Mule deer poaching under investigation, FWP confirms

Posted: Updated:

BUTTE - Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks confirmed Thursday they are investigating the poaching of a mule deer in Butte.

The 5x5 point buck was shot sometime Saturday evening near the Granite Mountain Memorial.

A tip led investigators to a suspect, but no charge has been filed as of Thursday evening.

The carcass has been confiscated, and officials are scoring the antlers to determine restitution before a charge is filed.

The deer killed was part of the pit herd that is often seen in the area of the Berkeley Pit.
