Elk NetworkHelp Find Kentucky Elk Poacher

General | February 25, 2020

Game wardens in Kentucky need your help finding who killed two bull elk in Knott County, located in the eastern portion of the state. Someone shot and killed the animals on February 20 in the Ball Creek area.

If you have any information, call the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ tip line at 1-800-25-ALERT or (606) 435-6069. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and several other organizations chipped in toward a $6,000 reward for details leading to an arrest and conviction.

For 2020, Remington partnered with RMEF to increase the visibility of poaching incidents in an effort to reduce poaching nationwide.
