Conservation officers traveled to the area and found two elk cows lying a few hundred yards from State Road 22, according to a DWR news release published Friday. Both elk had been shot and left to rot, the release adds.

The DWR encourages anyone with information about the poaching to call 1-800-662-3337. Tipsters can remain anonymous.

A reward for information is available, though the release does not specify a dollar amount.
