Two illegally killed deer were discovered over the weekend southeast of Bend.
A headless buck and a doe were found Sunday about seven miles south of where wildlife filmmakers found four dead deer in the Kotzman Basin on Nov. 17, according to the Oregon State Police. Three of the four deer, which were shot the day before, also had their heads removed.
The OSP Fish and Wildlife Division is seeking information about the identity of the poachers who killed the deer, and the Oregon Hunters Association is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to arrests in the cases.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Turn-In-Poachers tip line at 1-800-452-7888 or the OSP at 541-388-6213.
