BILLINGS – Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks game wardens are seeking information on a bull elk found shot and wasted on private land along Fattig Creek Road in Musselshell County.

Hunters reported the elk to FWP on Saturday, Nov. 25. Wardens investigated the situation and found the dead elk with a gunshot wound approximately 30 yards off the road. The elk was likely shot on the night of Friday, Nov. 24, or early morning Saturday, Nov. 25.

Hunters are prohibited from wasting any part of a game animal that is suitable for food, including the tenderloins, backstraps and all of the four quarters.
