Conservative officers kept busy in pursuit of poachers

Poachers have been busy on both sides of the lake in the past few weeks, killing wildlife and leaving it in the bush.

Poachers have been busy on both sides of the lake in the past few weeks, killing wildlife and leaving it in the bush for the scavengers.

Conservation officer Ed Seitz says a mule deer doe and her fawn that had been shot and left were found on Bear Main Forest Service Road at about the 37 or 38-kilometre mark, not far from Cameo Lake on Sunday.

A four point moose was also shot and left in a cutblock off the Stump Lake Forest Service Road, off the 201 Forest Service Road in the latter half of October. The carcass was found past Lower Barge Lake and reported Nov. 9, he said. Barge Lake is southeast of Idabel Lake, off Highway 33.

He asks that anyone who heard of anything in that area around that time or on the Westside late last week, call the RAPP line at: 1-877-952-7277.

“With restricted antler regulations, people need to invest in better binoculars so they can confirm their target before raising their rifles,” said Seitz.
