Eastern Washington should be full of them.  Perfect habitat.  I saw my first ones last December.  They are taking root and hope more are brought in to supplement the numbers. 

WDFW will start with one OIl permit and all of us will jump on it and they will make a ton of money and they did none of the work to make it happen.

I disagree.  We lack water in most areas people think would be perfect for them.   :twocents:

They will probably flock to the farms right?  I am not sure most farmers will be to thrilled, but there is a lot of irrigation in eastern washington.

Agreed.  I don't think it's bad habitat, but neither is it perfect.  Many folks don't consider the migrational routes and winter range requirements antelope need to flourish.

I've been hunting antelope in Montana and Wyoming for more than 20 years. Almost every year, I find antelope in very close proximity to where they were in prior years. There is habitat next to these areas that looks identical to me, but holds no antelope. There are the obvious water/food/cover factors, but there's more to it than meets the eye in determining habitat that will hold antelope.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Maybe to a certain point but most of eastern Washington still has more water than where I've hunted them in the very south east corner of Oregon.
