On January 22nd, 2019, Humboldt Conservation Officers received information on the TIP line regarding a moose that had been shot on private land 5 miles South of Carmel, Saskatchewan. Officers located a moose that was “barrel” dressed, approximately one mile West of the Carmel Pottery Church, leaving a significant amount of edible meat to waste. The moose was shot between Sunday, January 20th, 2019, and Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019. There was no open moose season during that time. Tire tracks from a two-wheel drive vehicle were identified at the scene, and some evidence was collected.
