Utah Division of Wildlife Resources conservation officers are seeking information after two bull elk were recently killed and left to waste in Sevier County. Both bull elk were shot and killed in the Browns Hole area on Fishlake Mountain in Sevier County. Investigators believe one of the elk — a 2x3 bull elk — was shot on Oct. 8 on the opening day of the spike bull hunt. The animal was found next to a cedar tree near an open sagebrush area. The second elk — a 5x4 bull elk — was killed sometime around Oct. 12. The animal was shot with a small caliber bullet. No attempt was made to remove the meat from either elk. It is illegal to allow protected wildlife to be wasted. Anyone with information regarding the illegal killing of these elk, or any other wildlife-related crimes in Utah, is encouraged to report it to DWR by calling the UTiP Hotline at 800-662-3337.
