Pair investigated in bull elk poaching case

Two Boundary County men are under investigation for allegedly poaching two bull elk near Priest Lake.

The elk were killed by archery equipment on Sept. 5, the day before the opening of bow season in Big Game Unit 1, said Chip Corsi, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game’s regional manager in Coeur d’Alene.

Charges are pending, according to officials, but identities of the suspects were being withheld.

The incident is the second report of elk poaching in the Idaho Panhandle this summer. In August, the carcass of a cow elk was found in the East Fork drainage of Hayden Creek. It had been shot below the right eye. Part of the meat was taken.
