  Someone that archery hunts shot a cow a few years back with one.  My brotherinlaw shot a cougar tom with a gps collar and ear tag.

I would have been tempted to put the GPS collar in my rig and drive all over the state, maybe leave it in downtown Seattle  :peep:

Quite a few years when hunting in Mt. with the father-in-law and he shot a collared cow. The collar was a piece of pvc 2" pipe that had been heated bent around in an oval and then where they came back together, flattened out and had 2 bolts holding it together. There was a gps tracker inside of it.

We copied down the info inscribed on it and turned it in at a game check. After the season I made contact with bioligist and he looked it up and said she was 16 years old, was collared when 1 1/2 and tracked for 2 winters. They then sent a copy of all they had. I was able to plot the movemnts on a map and she'd moved about 25 mile on the flat map between winter and summer. Was easy to see during the hunting seasons the movemants to different areas were more frequent. 

Was really fun to see the info and the movement.

Miss # 154 is looking good!  :o
The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgement.

Never mistake motion for action.

 I came across a herd in the Skokomish that had about 8 out of 25 collared; bulls and cows. They had been transplanted from the Chehalis Valley after the Skok herd had been decimated by the Squaxins.

I've only ever seen one elk with a collar.  It was a few years back in little naches .
