Tips are being sought in the Oct. 1 poaching of a spike-antlered deer off Falls City Road near Falls City.
According to the Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife Division, a person reported seeing a red Ford extended-cab pickup truck stop and one of the people from the truck fired two shots across the highway killing the buck.
The witness reported that a white man and a white woman estimated to be in their early 20s were in the truck, which is distinguished by a silver two-tone stripe along the side.
It also had a distinctive black, tubular-shaped “headache rack” behind the cab. A headache rack is a protective grid for the window.
