Antelope poaching issues. Please help!
« on: September 14, 2018, 01:54:33 PM »
Putting this up here to get the word out. There have been a rash of antelope near Yakima that have been poached. One was just found dead with the head removed. WDFW is on their way to look into it but I'm going to assume they won't find any tell tale evidence. There have been 7 killed, all in the same general area of Sellards Road. The Seattle/Puget Sound chapter of Safari Club International has a reward fund set up for information leading to conviction of antelope poachers in Washington state too.  If anyone hears anything, please contact WDFW with information. 
Thank you.

More poachers out there than you think. Even the people that you think are great law abiding citizens are the ones to watch the most  :twocents:

Oregon St U. put out a study 15 years or so ago that found for every legal taken animal there is an illegally/poached animal taken. That shows you how much poaching activity there is, and how much we never see/hear/know about.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Welp.......
It looks like the specific antelope in the photo above was hit by a car.

Still having poaching issues, but this particular one was not poached. Still a loss.
