We thank John Terwilliger for discovering and reporting the death of G6996.
We further thank 60 individuals who assisted in capturing deer and extend our
gratitude to the several pilots who skillfully flew the research aircraft, including
current pilots Wayne Erickson and Dean Lee of the U.S. Forest Service.
