BILLINGS — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks game wardens are offering a reward for information about a mule deer buck that was killed illegally and left to waste south of Billings on Nov. 12.

FWP game warden Courtney Tyree said the mule deer buck was shot illegally along Hillcrest Road south of Billings.

FWP is offering a reward of as much as $1,000 for information leading to a conviction of the persons responsible for the illegal kill. Anyone with information about the crimes is encouraged to call Tyree at (406) 860-7814 or FWP’s 24-hour wildlife tip line at 1-800-TIP-MONT (800-847-6668).

The 1-800-TIP-MONT program is a toll-free number where people can report violations of fish, wildlife or park regulations. Callers may remain anonymous. It is similar to the well-known Crimestoppers program and offers rewards for information resulting in conviction of persons who abuse Montana’s natural, historic or cultural resources.
