No Good 2 bit Poachers

This is a longshot but thought, what could it hurt? I was visiting with Sgnt. Dave Lowen a Montana Game Warden and he is working a case of a poached Mountain Goat. It was a young Billy and it was shot and the entire carcase left. It was shot in the Elk Horn mountains up Indian Creek just north west of Townsend Mt. To you guys that have came to any of my shoots it was just above the range by the lime plant quarry. I realize not many of you are in this area but if by chance you hear anything please contact Dave Lowen 1-800-Tip-Mont. He would really like to solve this case and any little tid bit could help.

I really don't understand why any low rent SOB would do this. I guess so he can brag to his buddies, beat his chest and tell everyone what a great hunter he is. Very sad that there are scums like this that call their selves hunters.

Thanks
Jeff

    I thought the radio article said it was a young bighorn male. It spoke of them just getting recovered from a big die-off several years ago. I wasn't aware of any goats in the area. Still pisses me off tho. Can't stand jerks just screwing around.

    Season on poachers is January 1 to December 31 and can be taken by any means necessary.

    Hope the culprits are caught. They make the rest of look bad.

    I was shown the horns. It was a young Billy mountain goat. The game warden did say that they are just starting to recover there. But it was indeed a Mountain Goat.

    Between the wolves, grizz and idiots the outlook in some areas is bleak for some of these species.

    Look at it this way.... If the current political climate remains unchanged and civility keeps degrading, at some point the species may change again......

    Living close to a large population center may have it's advantages.....
