ALBANY — Oregon State Police wildlife troopers in the Albany area say they’re trying to solve the case of a buck deer legally killed by a hunter, then stolen before the hunter could remove it from a field.

Trooper Kirk Burkholder says the unidentified hunter had tagged the deer and hidden it under a tree on Frank Timber property near where he killed it. When the hunter returned the deer was gone.
