On Nov. 15, OSP Fish & Wildlife was notified by an elk hunter of a poached deer off Ginger Creek Road. The deer was located at the end of a spur on BLM land near a common OHV staging area. The deer had been shot multiple times in the neck and torso. Only one backstrap was taken and the rest of the deer was dumped off the end of a spur road and left to waste. By the rate of decay, it is estimated to have occurred sometime between November 8-13, 2021.

The Oregon State Police is seeking public assistance with information about this poaching case. Any person with information related to this incident is encouraged to call the OSP TIP (Turn-In-Poachers) line at 1-800-452-7888 or by cell at *OSP (*677) or send an email tip to TIP@osp.oregon.gov.
