Bull moose shot, left to waste south of Butte

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking information on a mature bull moose shot and left to waste in the Highland Mountains south of Butte.

The moose was shot between Nov. 15 and 22, east of Melrose in Camp Creek, said FWP Game Warden Shane Yaskus.

“Coming from Melrose,” Yaskus said. “The moose was located after Camp Creek Road leaves private land but before Camp Creek Reservoir on the north side of the road.”

The inside spread on the antlers of the moose measured more than 35 inches, Yaskus said.

FWP is asking anyone with information on the incident to call 1-800-TIPMONT. Callers are kept confidential and a reward of up to $1,000 is possible.
