Below are two news releases from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. For 2022, Fiocchi partnered with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to increase the visibility of poaching incidents in an effort to reduce poaching nationwide.

Idaho Department of Fish and Game is seeking information regarding a bull elk that was shot and left to waste in Power County in southeast Idaho.

On Nov. 2, Fish and Game received a call from a concerned member of the public regarding the discovery of a 5 x 5 bull elk shot and left to waste just off Moonshine Trail south of American Falls in Unit 73A.   Results of the investigation so far indicate that the bull was likely killed during the antlerless elk season in that unit which began Oct. 25.  It was apparent that someone attempted to remove the elk’s head but was unsuccessful, and the entire carcass was wasted.

If anyone has any information regarding this case or any other wildlife violation, please contact Fish and Game Senior Conservation Officer Tyler Peterson at 208-251-4515 or the Citizens Against Poaching hotline at 1-800-632-5999.  Callers may remain anonymous and those with information leading to an arrest are eligible for rewards.

Fish and Game conservation officers are seeking information about a 6×6 bull elk that was shot and left to waste on a hillside near the summit of Clear Creek in Unit 39.

Officers believe the animal was shot sometime on Nov. 5.

Anyone with any information pertaining to this case is asked to contact the Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) hotline at 1-800-632-5999.
