Officers attended that area to try and locate the vehicle described in the TIPP but were unsuccessful. The next day officers went back to the area of the chase and discovered two bull elk that had been shot, one was still alive and suffering. The elk that was dead had been shot multiple times. Evidence was collected. A video of the incident was taken.  Picture of the truck provided is from that video.
