A Duchesne County man could face federal charges in the poaching of two bull elk, one of which may have been a world-class animal. The poaching incidents were reported to the state Help Stop Poaching hotline in November. They remain under investigation, said Lt. Torrey Christopherson, with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
