Three mule deer were illegally shot and killed in Park County over Mother’s Day Weekend.

According to a press release from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, partial remains of the deer were found near Park County Road, just north of Eleven Mile Reservoir. Two of the deer had wounds from a broad-head arrow and were probably shot by a bow or crossbow. Raccoon and fox remains were also found at the same location.

Authorities are offering up a huge reward for information leading to the arrest of the person involved in this triple deer poaching case. Currently, the total reward is set at $1,000.

The person responsible for the deer killings will face $500 fines per head, but it doesn’t stop there. There’s an additional $10,000 fine per each mule deer buck with an inside antler spread of at least twenty-two inches.
