One got in a fight with a car on 221.

It lost.

A update on additional antelope. So far they have dispersed into 7 different groups and have also joined up with some of the existing antelope that now inhabit the area. The GPS collars have made it a lot easier for them to be located and help find the other lopes. Of the 30 collars that were put on the adult females, 2 of them had died within the first 2 weeks, likely related to the trauma involved with the relocation. So far results look good and NDW feels the survival rate was excellent.

 Agreed, I've long hoped for a release along the 90 corridor between Vantage and Spokane, just to give me something to look for/at on that boring stretch of highway.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Awesome.

I know a wheat farmer down there and he said the antelope are more numerous than deer now and he sees them almost every day.  The way they are multiplying i could see a few permits being justified soon.  If that money was dedicated to bringing more in that would be a win win.

I think the jury is still out on "the way they are multiplying".  If you drop off 90 pregnant does and 4-5 years later have 140ish head........ not sure that's a home run.

I'm not trying to be negative and don't know the exact numbers but like I said......I think the jury is still out.   :twocents:

Sorry I am not better at keeping you up to date.
I was over last week and had a few hours to look around. With 2 updates from the Bio at Yakama Nation based on the GPS collars we used, I was able to locate 3 different groups in fairly short time compared to what it use to take even though they were 15 miles apart. Of these 3 groups , one group of 23 had 5 GPS collars and another group of 30 had 1 GPS collar. The other group of 9 did not have a GPS collar. So in this general area there were 62 antelope. Then guess what, we found another group of 35 also no GPS collars. Total found in the release area seen, is now 97.
We have 30 GPS collars that we put out that are still functioning. I only found 6 of them. Understand the release takes place on the Tribal Lands and most are probably still there. These are the ones that were off of tribal lands when I was over . Things are looking very good.
