Central Point Fish and Wildlife Troopers were called to investigate a live deer that had been shot by an arrow in the Shady Cove area on Friday.

One deer had an arrow through its neck, the other through its face. It's pictures of deer, walking through a field, with arrows shot through their bodies.

Oregon State Police Sgt. Kaito Raiser said on Sunday they have been unable to remove the arrows from the deer, as they've been unable to tranquilize the animals.

Oregon State Police are seeking information on two deer found still living with arrows in their bodies - in one case through the animal's head.

The Turn-In-Poachers (TIP) reward is paid for information leading to the arrest/conviction of person (s) for the illegal possession, killing, taking, and/or waste of deer, elk, antelope, bear, cougar, wolf, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, moose, furbearers and/or game birds.

"These arrows are not hunting-style arrows, and they're really meant to act like a gunshot to travel through the animal and create the most damage possible", Raiser said. There may be another deer that also has an arrow stuck in it, according to an agency news release.

"These arrows are not hunting-style arrows, and they're really meant to act like a gunshot to travel through the animal and create the most damage possible", Raiser told The Post during a brief telephone interview. The injuries to the deer did not appear to be life threatening.

At least two deer were shot with arrows in Shady Cove, Jackson County.
