Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for clues about a poaching incident that occurred Monday.

Fishermen at DeWeese Reservoir reported hearing shots around 11 a.m, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Wildlife officer Justin Krall responded and found where a deer had been field dressed a few feet off County Rd 241 on the DeWeese State Wildlife Area.
Krall hopes someone may have heard or seen something that may shed light on the incident. There is a $500 reward if a tip results in a citation.
Anyone with information can call Krall at 719-371-2240, contact Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648, or e-mail tips to Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife urges people to call their local wildlife office whenever they have information about illegal hunting or fishing activities. Callers may remain anonymous if they wish.
