Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) game warden, Justin Singleterry, is seeking information about a mule deer buck that was shot and then dumped off Willow Creek Road,
east of Corvallis in the Bitterroot Valley.

Evidence supports that the 4×4 buck was shot and killed on location and then discarded down a steep embankment. Nothing was taken from the deer and all meat left to waste.

The incident occurred approximately one quarter mile past the intersection of Willow Creek Road and Willow Creek Trailhead Road, right after a hard switchback.  FWP was notified
about the deer on November 7, 2019 through a public report. The deer could have been killed multiple days prior to its discovery.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call FWP warden Singleterry at 406-240-0764 or 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
