Doe shot in head in Barton County

Posted: Updated:

Deer hunting season ended across Kansas in mid-January. Yet a game warden in Barton County found a doe shot in the head this past weekend.

A Facebook post by a branch of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says the doe was poached in southeast Barton County either late Saturday or early Sunday.

People with information to help find the poacher are asked to call the Barton County Game Warden at 620-770-6083, or Operation Game Thief at 877-426-3843.
