North Dakota Game and Fish Department district game warden Corey Erck is searching for answers in the illegal taking, possession and dumping of four white-tailed deer, a turkey and coyote on the Apple Creek Wildlife Management Area in Burleigh County.
Erck said he investigated the report after receiving a call March 18, and by all indications the animals were recently discarded in the area.
The four deer and turkey were taken outside of a legal hunting season. All, including the coyote, were dumped on state land. There was evidence the deer and turkey were shot.
Anyone with information who wants to remain anonymous is asked to call the Report All Poachers telephone number at 800-472-2121. Also, callers can contact Erck directly at 701-320-2005.
The RAP line offers rewards for information that leads to conviction of fish and wildlife law violators.
