BAGGS, Wyoming — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is investigating a buck mule deer poaching north of Baggs in Carbon County.

Game Warden Kim Olson says the deer was killed out of season on the morning of Nov. 3.

The antlers were sawed off of the head and the back straps and three quarters were taken.

Olson says local hunters found the carcass and reported it to Game and Fish.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the agency's Stop Poaching Hotline at 1-877-943-3847.

Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000 if the information leads to a conviction.
