Neighbors noticed an arrow sticking out of the neck of a blacktail doe in Washington County and now a $1,500 reward is being offered to find out who shot the deer out of season.
The injured deer, first spotted Feb. 11, is believed to be caring for a yearling and likely is pregnant - part of a small herd frequently seen around the Cherry Grove area, authorities said.
The reward is offered by the Oregon Hunters Association, the Yamhill County Chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association and the Oregon Humane Society.
