The reward offered for information leading to the conviction of those involved in the poaching of a bull moose south of Bozeman has increased.

In addition to the up to $1,000 reward offered by Tip Mont, up to $6,000 has been offered by private donors.

The moose was killed approximately 1 mile up Moser Creek Road in the Hyalite drainage, south of Bozeman. Christmas tree hunters discovered the carcass on Saturday, Dec. 1, and reported it to FWP on Dec. 3.

When wardens investigated the area later on Dec. 3, they discovered that someone had removed the head since the carcass was first discovered on Dec. 1. The moose was likely killed a few days prior to Dec. 1.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to please contact FWP Region 3 Warden Justin Feddes 406-579-6267, or call 1-800-TIP-MONT (1-800-847-6668). Callers can remain anonymous.
