It’s of note that the mule deer was found with its head intact, as often only the bodies are recovered. Though non-residents are permitted to hunt on reservation land during archery deer season, rifle deer season is open only to tribal residents, and state hunting licenses are not valid on the reservation at all. Because the buck was killed on reservation land, the TATFWD will lead the investigation, with assistance from the NDGFD. There is a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the poacher’s arrest. Tips can be relayed via the state’s Report All Poachers telephone number: 1-800-472-2121.
