Idaho Fish and Game Seeking Information About Closed Season Elk Shot Near White Bird

Release from Idaho Department of Fish and Game
June 8, 2024

WHITE BIRD – On Memorial Day weekend, a cow elk was shot out of season east of White Bird off of the Free Use Road (Forest Service Road #243).  This stretch of road receives a fair amount of traffic from sportsmen and the public alike.  No attempt was made to salvage the meat.


It is probable that motorists or sportsmen noticed the shooter’s vehicle near the intersection of Banner Ridge and Free Use Rd and could offer information leading to the arrest of those responsible.

Anyone with information about these poaching incidents is encouraged to call the Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) hotline at (800)632-5999 or Fish and Game Senior Conservation Officer Ethan Bishop at (208)799-5010. Anyone providing information can remain anonymous.
