Harassment with a paintball gun is an excellent idea.  The other quality idea was the tribal hunter option. The close by Squaxin tribe hunts that area.  I have no doubt they would love to help her out.  I'm not too sure they follow the gun laws too closely though.........   Perhaps a chat with the tribal elders might be worth consideration.

Even as a landowner you can't just kill deer because you don't want them there. That would be considered poaching. Put up a good fence.

That's funny!  I don't know of a farmer that doesn't put two or three deer in their freezer and the freezers of their neighbors every year.  I've had this discussion with WDFW officers before, when the state starts paying crop loss and trespass fees for state game they can start regulating farmers shooting them out of their orchards and crops.

Not sure that one will hold up in court

Here's a story about one man who killed some nuisance animals:

Never make it to a court.  I've had game officers tell me that you can't kill deer out of your orchard or out of your garden, then turn around and say straight up, "of course who would know if you did".  Common sense as always, its not a license to go into the commercial venison business.  If a farmer is losing crops aka money from his business due to wild game, have no doubt we will kill that game or other nuisance animal.
Seems like sound legal advice... :o NOT!!!

Man I swear I heard a definition for that kind of behavior somewhere in this thread. If there is an issue, continue to elevate it- WDFW, local politicians, state politicians, WDFW citizen committees, different contacts at WDFW, Ag lobbying groups, etc. Squeaky wheel gets the grease eventually. I'm sure plenty of youth hunters/disabled/any other antlerless tag holder would be more than happy to lend a hand, but there is really no excuse for the unauthorized take of public wildlife

I can't even imagine shooting a deer on an area as small as SB Island :chuckle:

I scratched my head when I looked at it too.  Turns out the OP said "near Steamboat" not on.
