Somebody shot and killed a red stag deer that was on LUKE BRYAN’s farm in Tennessee.  And the Maury County Sheriff’s Office is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction.

The shooting happened between December 4th and December 6th . . . and officials believe it was shot from the road.  Red deer are not native to the U.S. . . they’re larger deer and they share some similarities to elk.

A rep for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said, quote, “As an agency we appreciate our hunters who do the right thing and follow the bylaws, and it takes a second for someone to ruin it for all of us.”

As of last night there was no statement from Luke or his people.
