So I was up in bountiful up by the b an herd gun shots sounding like a low caliper weapon I look across the canyon and see too guys with rifles slaughtering some mule deer and some larger animal I quickly called it in I was on the phone with them for over 30 min then it took easily an hour in a half by the time they got up there the loaded up the animals an were gone I would have went and made contact with them or see where they were going or get a license plate but i wasn't familiar with the area on how to get over there. So the officer said he's gonna go back up during the day and find more evidence. It's too bad they couldnt of had better response time.
That is really unfortunate. They dont have a lot of winter range as it is right there and for people to be up there poaching is terrible. Were they using spotlights? Was this in the middle of the night?
Good for you for calling it in!!!! Too many folks wouldn't have.
I also think that approaching them wasn't the wisest thing to attempt (Glad to hear that you could not...didn't know how to get to where they were). Men with firearms breaking the law may just turn them on you if they feel that they have been busted. It would have been great to get a vehicle description of something like that but you did what you could do. Good on ya!
it was around 4pm plain day light gave the officer color of the fourwheelers and what they were wearing but nothing other then that. ya that is very true about aprouching them. i would have just followed them very quitly. the dwr never turned anything up other then blood from what they belive four or more animals.
