GLASGOW, Mont. (NMB) – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 6 game wardens are seeking any information regarding an antelope buck that was shot and left to waste west of Glasgow. A press release says that the incident occurred on BLM land along the old bentonite railroad bed road about 9 miles west of where the road splits off the main Bentonite road.
A local hunter reported the dead antelope buck on August 21st, indicating the location. Upon investigating the scene, Warden Todd Tryan observed a small hole in the body cavity that indicated the antelope was wounded and left to waste. Due to the level of decay, Tryan estimated that the incident occurred sometime around the middle of August.
The archery season for antelope began on August 15th, but rifle hunting for antelope doesn’t begin until October 12th.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Tryan at 406-263-0067.
