I've always heard, the number one rule in hunting on private land is to get permission. When in doubt, clear out. Oregon State Patrol and Department of Wildlife officials are looking for these two men, and possibly a third, in connection with three elk which were found to have been killed illegally. Their bodies and meat were left to rot.
The 2016-17 winter was a particularly harsh one not only for humans but apparently wildlife as well..an eastern Oregon man from Wallowa was arrested after 20+ rotting elk carcasses were discovered on his property and nearby
