Weyerhauser had this problem back in the 70's over in the Kalama River area when I was a yout'. There was quite a little herd as I recall, something like 50 critters.  I was a teenager when we moved there and the "damage hunt" had taken place the year before we moved to the lower hatchery.  It's easy peasey lemon squeezy to resolve.  But I feel wildlife agencies are less concerned with involving hunters than they used to be.

Good job Knocker.  Was curious who would catch that.

They won't use guns to solve this problem. Guns can't be seen as a positive tool right now. They'll spend millions on helicopters, darting and euthanizing, then wasting/destroying the meat so evil guns remain so; only evil. CA residents will drink the koolaid every frikkin' time. I'd simply love to help them take care of this problem for around $1 a pull.

What prevents a guy from shooting one and loading it up?  If that was Washington, wouldn't it be considered unclassified wildlife and fair game year round with any weapon and no license?

No.

State livestock laws in WA only permit removal of "trespass livestock" only by the sheriff's office or the brand inspector. There's no vigilante shooting of cows in WA.

Everyone throwing out dollar estimates for ammo should bump those numbers up. Remember this is in California where you can't use lead ammo.

Now then, get your equipment—your quiver and bow—and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.  Gen. 27:3

That first part of the Crest trail can be an eye opening experience with cattle and pit bulls on the trail for those starting their trek northward.

Go to Hawaii, you can get a tag and hunt them.

different areas have different draws, rules and I think some are native Hawaiian only.
