while you are counting antelope.  It would be interesting to see how many horses are on the rez too.  They are the reason the Antelope have dispersed so much.  I have only seen a few antelope off of hwy 97 in the last year.
I'd be very interested in that too. It is really a disgusting amount especially when you take a look at what they've done to the land.

I feel that the anti's have been pretty hard on what the YN can do with the horses. At one time they were shipping them out of the country to have them processed for other purposes, but that came to an end. Now they do have a huge problem and I do know they have been working on it. Results have not been to good for the antelopes to stay there. Sure could feed alot of hungary people with the problem they have.

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

thats awesome that you are introducing antelope over there. I always wondered why there were not any in a lot of eastern washington looks like a lot of good habitat and some of it reminds me of eastern montana where I used to hunt antelope a lot. I hope it works out for ya

There is some work being done on the horses.  :-X

The antelope that I see don't seem to stick in one specific area very long with the exception of those few just outside of kennewick.  They will need new genetics if they are to survive but I can't say I care for the lack of rule following that takes place............or I should say the hiding behind the res so it doesn't have to follow the rules that everyone else does. 

But, I don't want to hijack this thread or get into that whole thing again.  I haven't seen any in the last month.

Antelope update
Yesterday all the groups involved in doing the surveys gathered again and set a date of the first week in March, as the week would be doing the surveys. Those groups involved YN, WDFW, and SCI individuals put what we hope to be a very thought out plan using both ground crews and an airplane over a 3 day period to cover the areas between Klickitat area west of Goldendale all the way east to Kennewick. A very large area, however thanks to some of the information we gather from this site and other sources  we do have a good starting point. Thanks again for the information you supplied. Last week one of our SCI members counted 40 antelope in a couple of these areas. For those of you that do see the antelope and have bino's we are trying to gather informations as to how many in each group have collars and or ear tags. Of the original 99 that were released all had ear tags, therefore any that you see that do not have ear tags are born and raised Washington antelope and not a part of the original release which occurred in Jan. 2011. As March gets a little close we will be looking for any additional sighting that any of you might have as it would be very beneficial both in time and money.

thanks for all of the updates. Due to some really nice weather there may be a chance the surveys might just take place in the next 2 weeks and as early as next week. It appears WDFW has been working on some moose surveys but due to lack of snow they are having difficulty locating them so me might just step up our survey. At least the wolves haven't ate our antelope so we should be able to find them. I will keep you posted as to when, so you can let me know what you are seeing out there. Thanks again.
