One of three deer shot from a roadway in and near Ozark National Scenic Riverways national park.

Ozark National Scenic Riverways is seeking the public’s help — and offering a $5,000 reward — to find whoever illegally killed three deer that were shot from a roadway with high-powered rifles.

Park rangers were alerted to the killings on Monday — three dead deer south of Big Spring. Two of the deer were located within the park, one near Chubb Hollow and the other south of Cataract Landing.

The third deer was found on private property neighboring the park near Big Tree. According to a park news release, all three were determined to have been shot from roadways with high powered rifles at some time on Nov. 22 or 23.

Although many national park sites prohibit hunting, Ozark National Scenic Riverways allows hunting in compliance with the Missouri Wildlife Code and welcomes hunters who use legal means to pursue and take game.
