We also have the Nevada Game and Fish agreeing to give us another 48 this winter. Just need to raise the needed funds again to make it happen. Probably $30-35,000. We have just about used up our SCI funds to keep this happening. We will be soliciting funds at our fundraiser on Feb. 24th in Lynnwood. You can always attend and come see the protesters protest what we do for wildlife.
Our event is posted on the events site . Seattle Sportsmen's Convention. Roughly it cost us $500/animal to do initial capture with a helicopter, $650/collar for one's we collar and approx. $175/month for GPS data on 30 collars over a 3 year period. Not cheap but has been well worth it. We personally transport the animals back at no cost, and most all of the work is done by us volunteers on the ground.

That’s awesome.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

On another note - and this is not to start a debate - but does anyone know if the Yakama Nation has a moratorium on Tribal Antelope Hunting?  It seems as though they would, seeing how they funded some of this work.

The long term plan is to provide hunting opportunity via special permit. The other special permit species are mt goat, bighorn sheep and bison. But, we are always off from ANY hunting of antelope.
