Oregon State Police (OSP) Fish & Wildlife Division troopers are asking for the public's help for information to identify the suspect(s) responsible for an unlawful killing of a buck deer in late November near Lincoln City. This deer poaching case happened during the 2nd Coast Rifle Bull Elk Season and a $500 reward is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.

On November 23, 2010 OSP Fish & Wildlife troopers located a buck blacktail deer shot and left to waste off Forest Service Road 17 near Lincoln City. The deer was found thrown over the embankment next to the road. Kehr believes the deer was killed within the previous 12 hours and the antlers had been cut off. Troopers were not able to salvage the meat.
