Any info on what is to be done with the Colville plants that are no longer on the Reservation?

Thanks Bone,  Jack- yes more than likely, being that we are working with State employed individuals, the survey will be during the week. Pictures are great too, I have some myself. Nice to see born and raised Washington antelope. All of the original release had ear tags and would be interesting to know if any of those are left.

I'd love for the natives to thumb their nose at the feds and take care of the horse issue.   Its out of control.

No kidding

Last week I saw about 15 of the Colville ones I can only assume?  Pretty far off the res.  But really really far from Yakima.  Never would have thought to see them here!!! Pretty cool though...

We are currently setting a date of Jan. 26 and 27th to do the surveys. WDFW has set up the airplane and things are looking like a go. Any current updates on sightings in the area would be appreciated so save a little time in ground crews being on top of it to confirm we don't miss anything from the air. PM me works fine, if you are interested in being a ground spotter let me know also and I will see what I can arrange. We appreciate your help.

We will be up and running on the antelope surveys next week in the Yakima - Tri-City area. Any sightings would sure help out. If time permits we will be covering areas westerly to the Goldendale also. Would be great to find that the herd has expanded and increased in population.

A photographer posted a pic of a group of 4 or 5 he took near Vantage.

runamuk,
Can you tell me where the pictures are. More than likely the group near Vantage would be part of our Yakama release. I would like to know as close as possible where they were seen.

it was a photographer on Facebook on the group Kittitas county photographers. I could go dig through the group and see if I can find it again and get you a name.

I know that last year in Sept/October there were a couple groups (maybe same/split) in the area of Mansfield. I know that was long ago, but it could be helpful. My buddy sent me pics of them in the cut wheat fields he owns.
Wishing I was fishing...or in Wyoming
