A reward is being offered to help find the culprits who are poaching elk in the Northern Lower Peninsula.
In mid-December, three adult elk cows were killed illegally in Otsego County.
It was the third such case in northern Michigan in roughly a month. In mid-November, one bull elk was killed in Montmorency County and another was poached in the Pigeon River Country in Otsego County.
The Safari Club International-Michigan Involvement Committee is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of an individual or individuals illegally killing elk in Michigan.
The Club also has a standing $1,000 reward for information leading to moose poachers.
To report information on the illegal killing of elk or moose in Michigan, call or text the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Report All Poaching hotline at 800-292-7800.
