WESTCLIFFE, Colo. -

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for clues about a poaching incident that occurred Monday.

Fishermen at DeWeese Reservoir reported hearing shots around 11 a.m, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Wildlife officer Justin Krall responded and found where a deer had been field dressed a few feet off County Rd 241 on the DeWeese State Wildlife Area.
 
Krall hopes someone may have heard or seen something that may shed light on the incident. There is a $500 reward if a tip results in a citation.
 
Anyone with information can call Krall at 719-371-2240, contact Operation Game Thief at 877-265-6648, or e-mail tips to game.thief@state.co.us. Verizon cell phone users can dial #OGT.
