LICENSE REQUIREMENTS
ALL HUNTERS
■ Must have a valid hunting license. (See exceptions for youths participating in the Mentored Youth Hunter Program at odfw.com/
education/mentored_youth)
» Hunting licenses are valid through December 31 of each year. Hunts extending into or beginning in the following calendar year
require a new hunting license.
» No one may possess more than one valid annual hunting license. However, for the purpose of acquiring preference points
under the controlled hunts system and hunting big game, a youth between the ages of 9 and 13 may hold both a free youth
license and a juvenile hunting license.
» Hunters, 14 years of age and older, who will be hunting predators on public land, and western gray squirrels, unprotected
mammals, and unprotected birds on public or private land must have a valid hunting license. No tags are required.
» Any hunter with a valid Oregon or Idaho hunting license may hunt in the waters or on the islands of the Snake Rvr, where the rvr
forms the boundary between the two states. All laws and rules of the respective states apply.
» To apply for controlled hunts, all hunters must purchase a current hunting license.
■ To hunt big game you must have in possession a valid hunting license and a big game tag valid for the dates, area, and species
being hunted.
■ Licenses, tags, and controlled hunt applications can only be obtained at license agents throughout the state, via the internet
(www.odfw.com/online_license_sales), or through the headquarters office by mail, fax, or in person.
» Licenses and tags may be purchased for you by a family member or friend.
OREGON RESIDENTS
■ Obtaining hunting, combination, or Sports Pac license.
» Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 635-010-0015(4)(a) provides the legal standard for purchasing a resident license: “A
resident is one who has physically dwelled in Oregon continuously for the six months prior to applying for a license. Temporary
absences from Oregon during that time period do not defeat a person’s residency so long as such absences were not for the
purpose of establishing residency outside Oregon.
» These requirements are waived for certain active members of the uniformed services and for some foreign exchange students
(see OAR 635-010-0015(4) for details). Submitting a false application is a crime.
NONRESIDENTS (INCLUDING NONRESIDENT MEMBERS OF UNIFORMED SERVICES)
■ Must obtain a valid nonresident hunting license or nonresident juvenile hunting license if 14 years of age or older.
■ Must obtain a valid nonresident tag for each species they will hunt.
■ A nonresident license, or a nonresident uniformed services license, and/or tag may be purchased for a person by a family member
or friend directly from a license agent or by mail, via the internet (www.odfw.com/online_license_sales), or fax.
YOUTH (RESIDENT AND NONRESIDENT)
■ License, controlled hunt application and big game tag requirements.
» All hunters 12 years of age and older must purchase a hunting license to apply in the big game controlled hunt drawing, to
purchase a tag and hunt in any big game season and to apply for and receive landowner preference tags.
» Youth 11 years of age are allowed to purchase a juvenile hunting license provided they will turn 12 at the time they hunt.
» Youth 9-12 must purchase a hunting license to participate in the point saver program. See page 11.
■ No one 11 years of age and younger may hunt for big game.
» See exceptions for youths participating in the Mentored Youth Hunter Program at odfw.com/education/mentored_youth.
■ Tags and applications requirements
» Youth 13 years of age and younger are required to obtain a FREE license in order to purchase turkey tags or apply for sage
grouse hunts and waterfowl reservations.
■ Hunters 17 years of age or younger can buy a juvenile hunting license.
■ Youth 13 years of age and younger while hunting on property other than land owned by parent or legal guardian must be
accompanied by an adult 21 years of age or older.
■ Youth 17 and younger must have a Hunter Education Certificate or a department issued document (ex. hunting license) which
includes their Hunter Education Certificate Number in their possession to hunt anywhere except on land owned by their parent or
legal guardian. See www.dfw.state.or.us/education/hunter/ for Hunter Education information.
■ Hunters ages 17 and under must wear a hunter orange exterior garment (shirt, jacket, coat, vest, or sweater) or hat when hunting
game mammals or upland birds (except turkey) with any firearm. The exterior garment or hat must have hunter orange visible in all
directions (360 degrees).
LANDOWNERS
■ A resident does not need a license to hunt on land upon which the person resides and is owned by the person or a member of the
person’s immediate family, unless they are hunting a species for which a tag is required.
■ If landowners are purchasing big game tags, applying in the big game controlled hunt drawings or applying for landowner
preference tags, a hunting license is required.
■ All landowners (residents and nonresidents) eligible for landowner preference must send in appropriate landowner preference forms,
purchase a valid hunting license, and apply by specified deadlines to receive landowner preference tags. See page 13 for details.
■ A landowner or landowner agent does not need a hunting or trapping license to take predatory animals on land they own, lease,
lawfully occupy, possess, or have charge of or dominion over. See page 72 for the definition of a predatory animal.

ABOUT LICENSES, CONTROLLED HUNT APPLICATIONS AND TAGS
The ODFW POS system and online
sales are available 24 hours a day.
Check with your local license agent to
determine store hours for POS sales.
Note: As a hunter it is your responsibility to:
■ Ensure the hunts you apply for (all
choices in all series) are hunts you want
to participate in.
■ Monitor your preference points, tags
allocated to specific hunts, and odds of
drawing a tag.
■ Ensure the actual area you are interested
in hunting is within the hunt boundary and
is open for hunting access.
■ Secure access to any private lands you
wish to hunt on within the established
hunt area boundary.
ODFW strives to make all information
available to all hunters and ODFW will not
reinstate preference points or change tags
because the tag you drew is not the one
you wanted or expected.
LICENSES
You can buy a hunting license in person,
by mail, via the internet, or by fax. A $2.00
shipping and handling fee applies. You
must have a license to apply for controlled
hunts or buy tags (license may be
purchased before or at the same time you
purchase your controlled hunt applications
or general season tags.)
1. To purchase in person, go to any
license agent.
2. To purchase by mail or fax, use
the application form at odfw.com/
resources/forms_applications.
3. To purchase by internet, please visit
www.odfw.com/online_license_sales.
CONTROLLED HUNT APPLICATIONS
TO APPLY for a controlled hunt, you must
have a VALID HUNTING LICENSE.
Application fee is $8.00 per hunt series.
Apply at a license agent, via the internet,
by mail or by fax.
■ To apply by mail or fax, use the
application form at odfw.com/resources/
forms_applications. A $2.00 shipping
and handling fee applies. If applying in
person or via the internet, you may use
the application form as a worksheet to
speed up the process. License agents
will ask for information shown on the
application form.
■ Available hunt choices are listed in the
controlled hunt tables for each species/
series.
■ Enter at least one complete hunt
number choice (3-digit minimum).
You may enter up to four additional
hunt choices. All hunt choices on one
application for a series must have the
same first digit.
■ Hunters should apply for more than one
hunt choice in case a particular hunt is
cancelled.
■ Verify that all information entered
is what you requested before the
transaction is completed. The license
agent will give you an application
receipt showing your hunt choices. You
should check it for accuracy before you
leave the license outlet and keep it for
proof of application.
PARTY APPLICATIONS
You must indicate if you are applying
as an individual, party member or party
leader when applying for your controlled
hunts. All applicants, including party leader
must purchase separate applications.
Parties must assign ONE member as
the party leader. Each party member,
except party leader, must enter their party
leader’s Hunter/Angler ID number on their
application.
■ The party leader’s hunt choices will be
used for the entire party. All members
must list the same choices as the party
leader on their individual applications.
■ Party-size limitations: 18 hunters for deer
and elk; six hunters for black bear; ONLY
two hunters for pronghorn antelope.

■ All persons in parties that exceed the
allowed party size will be considered
single applicants in the drawing.

This also applies to limits on controlled
hunts for nonresidents. If the nonresident
maximum is reached, parties composed
solely or partially of nonresidents will not
receive tags in that particular hunt.

CONTROLLED HUNT DEADLINES
For controlled hunt deadline information,
see page 7.
PREFERENCE POINT SYSTEM
Ŷ
■ Hunters who apply and do not receive
their first choice for pronghorn, deer, elk
and spring black bear controlled hunts
receive a preference point for future
controlled drawings for those species.
■ All party applicants will receive one
Ŷ
preference point for the species listed
above if they do not receive their first
hunt choice.
■ Hunters DO NOT have to apply for the
Ŷ
same hunt number in consecutive years
to gain points.
■ Preference points will be kept on
Ŷ
file under a person’s Hunter/Angler
ID number.
■ Failure to consistently use the same ID
Ŷ
number can prevent you from being
successful in the drawing.
■ Party applicant points shall be
Ŷ
determined by totaling preference
points of all party members and then
calculating the average of this total.
Average party preference points will be
rounded up from .51 and rounded down
from .50 to the next whole number
(example: 3.51 to 4; 3.50 to 3).
■ Drawing a first choice hunt within a hunt
Ŷ
series takes the successful hunter’s
point total back to zero whether or not
they purchase the tag, except for those
hunters with a Pioneer Angling/Hunting
License. Successful applicants with a
Pioneer Angling/Hunting License shall
have one preference point when they
next apply for a tag in that hunt number
series. Hunters who successfully draw
second or lower hunt choices still
receive a preference point for future
drawings except in the case of a first
hunt choice that is cancelled. (See
pages 11-12). Their existing preference
point total will also carry over. Hunters
who indicate a Point Saver number, one
ending in 99, will receive a preference
point that will add to any existing points
for that hunt series.
■ Hunters will not forfeit their preference
Ŷ
points if they do not apply for a hunt
series for two or more consecutive years.
Preference points remain in the system
until they are redeemed by drawing a hunt.
■ Applicants who have their license
Ŷ
suspended by legal action will forfeit all
preference points.
■ Youth participating in the Mentored
Ŷ
Youth Hunting Program will receive one
mentored youth preference point for each
year they register for the program. See
odfw.com/education/mentored_youth.
POINT SAVER HUNT NUMBERS
Point Saver hunt numbers give hunters a
preference point and maintain existing
preference points. If you do not plan
to hunt in a controlled hunt series, you
can apply for a Point Saver to gain a
preference point. You can still hunt during
general seasons and/or purchase leftover
tags if available. You can also apply for
an emergency hunt in addition to general,
controlled hunt and/or leftover tags.
How to Apply: (see odfw.com/resources/
hunting/big_game/controlled_hunts/#how
for controlled hunt application procedures).

HOW THE DRAWING WORKS
Public Welcome! For date and time of
public drawing, call 1-800-708-1782.
■ The computer assigns each application a
Ŷ
10-digit random number. Members of the
public pick a 10-digit number at random
for each hunt series. Those random
starting numbers are used by the
computer to select successful applicants.
■ Hunting parties are maintained by the
Ŷ
computer and only the party leader’s
10-digit number is used in the drawing.
■ The controlled hunt drawing allocates
Ŷ
75% of first choice available tags
for a hunt to applicants with existing
preference points. The remaining 25%
will be drawn randomly from a pool of
all applicants. This step ensures that
all applicants have some chance of
drawing a tag each year they apply.
■ All applicants are grouped by
Ŷ
preference points and then arranged
by 10-digit random number within
preference point group.
■ Tags are awarded in each preference
Ŷ
point group beginning with the applicant
whose 10-digit number matches (or is
closest to and above) the start number.
■ The selection continues with the applicant
Ŷ
having the next higher number and
continues until 75% of available tags are
awarded or until all first-choice applicants
have received tags. Any remaining tags
from the 75% will be added to the 25%.
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
■ Then all remaining applicants are
Ŷ
rearranged solely by 10-digit random
number to award the remaining tags
(25% of total available).
■ All applicants in a hunt series are
Ŷ
grouped by first hunt choice. Tags are
assigned to first choice applicants as
above until all tags are assigned or all
first choices are filled. Tags are only
assigned to second choice applicants
after all first choices have been filled.
■ Selection is still based on the draw
Ŷ
numbers described above.
■ This sequence is followed for 3rd, 4th
Ŷ
and 5th choices. Preference points do
not apply to 2nd or lower choices.
LEFTOVER CONTROLLED TAGS
Leftover tags for hunts with fewer
applicants than there are tags will be
sold on a first-come, first-serve basis
beginning at 10 a.m. (Pacific time) on Mar.
15 for black bear and July 1 for all other
big game series (see page 13 for LOP
leftover tag information) until all tags are
sold as follows:
■ Hunts having leftover tags may include:
Ŷ
Controlled Deer hunts (100 series),
Controlled Elk hunts (200 series),
Controlled Pronghorn Antelope (400
series), Controlled Antlerless Deer (600
series) and Controlled Spring Bear (700
series).
■ Only hunts with more tags than
Ŷ
applicants (including 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th
and 5th hunt choices) in the Controlled
Hunt Drawing will qualify. Tags awarded
through the controlled hunt drawing,
but not claimed or purchased will not be
included or available for sale.
■ Tags from “unlimited” tag hunts, and
Ŷ
hunts where the tag is also valid during
a general season, some hunts where
access is limited may be excluded from
the first-come, first-serve process.
■ A list of hunts and available leftover tags
Ŷ
for sale on a first-come, first-serve basis
will be made available at license agents
and ODFW offices by Mar. 15 for bear
and July 1 for all other big game species.
■ Leftover tags except LOP tags may only
Ŷ
be purchased in person at license agents
or ODFW offices. Mail orders and faxes
will not be accepted for leftover tags.
■ Leftover LOP tags may only be purchased
Ŷ
through the Controlled Hunts office.
■ Only one leftover tag may be purchased
Ŷ
per person per hunt series.
■ Leftover tags are in addition to General
Ŷ
Season, Controlled Hunt, or LOP tags
you may purchase in a series.
■ Leftover tags MUST be purchased by
Ŷ
the day before the earliest opening date.
See page 13 for LOP leftover tags.
■ Leftover tags purchased by youth do
Ŷ
not impact their eligibility for “First Time”
tags in that series.
■ Leftover tags will be sold at the regular
Ŷ
price for the current hunting season.
However, leftover tags may be sold
at a price up to four times the regular
amount in the future.
■ No Preference Points will be given or
Ŷ
taken away when purchasing leftover tags.
11
CANCELLED HUNTS
■ Information about any cancelled hunts
will be made available to the general
public by Apr. 15.
■ A postcard will be sent to all applicants
who apply for a hunt that is cancelled
by Apr. 15, stating the hunt applied for
has been cancelled and the following
options are available:
» Option 1 - The second hunt choice
becomes first choice. If a hunter
is successful in the draw, no
preference points are awarded and
existing preference points will return
to zero. If unsuccessful, applicants
will receive a preference point.
» Option 2 - Request an application
change for another hunt at no
additional cost through the Salem
office (submit through mail, fax,
etc.), or for a Point Saver at no
additional cost.
» Option 3 - Withdraw application
with refund, receive no preference
point.
» If ODFW does not receive
notification from an applicant,
Option 1 will be chosen.
NONRESIDENT APPLICANTS
■ A maximum of 3% of tags for pronghorn
antelope and black bear hunts and a
maximum 5% of tags for controlled
deer and controlled elk hunts can be
issued to nonresidents. No less than 5%
and no more than 10% of all bighorn
sheep and Rocky Mt goat tags will be
issued to nonresidents. Less than the
maximum percentage may be issued,
as nonresident applications receive no
preference other than existing preference
points in the drawings. The Guides and
Outfitters Program impacts the number of
nonresident tags available in the drawing.
■ Parties will not be split if the nonresident
maximum is reached for any hunt.
■ Parties composed solely or partially
of nonresidents will not be eligible
to receive tags in a hunt after the
nonresident maximum is reached.
NONRESIDENTS BLACK BEAR
APPLICATION PROCEDURES
1. Applicants must provide the following

com. Controlled Hunt staff will also be
available during regular business hours.
CONTROLLED HUNTS
503-947-6102 -or1-800-708-1782 (In Oregon only)
GUIDES AND OUTFITTERS
As enacted by the 1997 Oregon State
Legislature, the Guides and Outfitters
Program provides guides and outfitters
with the opportunity to market nonresident
tags. A number of tags equal to one-half the
nonresident tags drawn in the previous year
are available through this program. Guides
certified by the Oregon State Marine Board
submitted applications and competed for
the right to market these tags. Tags not sold
to guides by Apr. 15 are available in the that
year’s big game drawing. Information on
Guides and Outfitters can be obtained from
Oregon State Marine Board in Salem, 503378-8587, extension 225.
EMERGENCY HUNTS
An emergency hunt is a hunt held on
short notice to address acute agricultural
or reforestation damage. Most game
damage situations are addressed during the
annual big game seasons and the ODFW
anticipates very few emergency hunts during
any year. Emergency hunts may be held
on a private property ownership or multiple
ownerships wherein the district biologist has
established a hunt area. On average, about
200 tags are issued annually statewide.
Emergency hunt bag limits are in addition
to any animals harvested during general
seasons, controlled hunts, or leftover hunts.
1. How to Apply: Emergency hunt
participants are selected from a list
established on a county-by-county
basis. You may apply for one county
only. Applicants can request an
emergency hunt application from the
headquarters office, any regional
office or some district offices, or apply
online at https://fwpubapps.odfw.
com/EmergencyHunt. Hard copy
applications must be submitted to the
headquarters office of ODFW, 4034
Fairview Industrial Drive SE, Salem,
Oregon 97302.
2. When to Apply: Applications received
between July 1 - July 31 will be
randomly assigned to lists. After July
31, names will be placed on lists
in the order received. Applications
received prior to July 1 will only be
valid on the current year’s list ending
June 30. Applications from Master
Hunters (see page 87 for information)
received between July 1 - July 31 will
be randomized, then placed at the top
of the emergency hunt list by county.
All other applications, including Master
Hunters, received after July 31 will be
placed on lists in the order received.
3. Who May Apply: Hunters 12 years
and older at the time of application
are eligible. Persons under 18 must
be accompanied by a responsible
adult (age 21 or older) while hunting.
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife
All hunters must possess a valid
hunting license. Hunters may apply
singly, or in parties of two. ODFW
will try to keep parties together for
emergency hunts whenever possible.
In hunts requiring single hunters,
however, party applications may be
bypassed for that opportunity but will
retain their position on the list.
4. Disqualification: Applicants submitting
more than one application will
be disqualified. Application forms that
are incomplete or illegible will be
disqualified.
5. Landowners: Landowners are eligible
to receive Landowner Preference
(LOP) tags to hunt on their land
within emergency hunt areas. LOP
tags issued for an emergency hunt are
issued on the same land ownership
acreage schedule as are LOP tags for
controlled hunts and are in addition to
LOP tags issued for controlled hunts
and leftover tags. Landowners do not
have to be on the emergency hunt list
but they must be within the emergency
hunt boundary. Landowners can obtain
LOP tags for established emergency
hunts by contacting the headquarters
office, Controlled Hunt Section or any
ODFW office.
6. Notification for Emergency Hunts:
Individuals listed for a county in which
a hunt is to be held will be notified by
telephone and given instructions on
when and where to check in for the
hunt. Individuals unable to meet the
time schedule will be bypassed, but
will retain their position on the list.
Individuals participating in a hunt will
be removed from the list.
7. Emergency Hunt Tags: Hunters
must possess a valid hunting license
and Emergency Hunt Tag issued
by ODFW personnel. Hunters must
check in and out of the hunt area
as directed by ODFW personnel.
Successful hunters must:
» Tag the harvested animal
immediately;
» Contact the ODFW office that
authorized the hunt; and
» Pay a fee equal to the regular tag
fee for that species.
UNIFORMED SERVICES ACTIVE DUTY
CONTROLLED HUNT TAGS
Oregon’s active duty members of the
uniformed services stationed outside of the
state can obtain a controlled deer, elk, or
spring bear hunt tag if they return to Oregon
on leave during the season so they can
hunt with their family and friends. To qualify
for these tags the individual must be from
Oregon, currently stationed outside of the
state, and maintain Oregon residency.
■ Tags will be issued on a first-come,
first-served basis until the authorized
number of tags have been issued.
■ All hunt specific regulations for the hunt
where a tag is issued will apply.
■ Tag recipient must pay the standard
resident price for the tag.
■ For further information please contact
an ODFW District Office to make an
appointment.
LANDOWNER PREFERENCE PROGRAM LOP
How to Apply: Landowners must register,

Note: LOP tags are not available for the
new long duration (August 1 - December
31) or the Melrose 223T (August 1 - March
31) youth elk hunts. In certain controlled
buck deer and elk units, LOP tags will
be limited to five tags or 10% of the total
controlled hunt tags; whichever is greater.

hunts with an either-sex or a one doe or
fawn bag limit occurring on a landowner’s
registered property are also eligible. If an
applicant is successful in receiving a LOP
pronghorn antelope tag for a hunt with
an either-sex bag limit, the LOP tag is
automatically issued with a bag limit of one
doe or fawn.

FERAL SWINE
Feral swine are an invasive non-native
introduced species in Oregon that destroy
important wildlife habitat and may prey on
livestock and native wildlife, with potential
to transmit diseases to wildlife, livestock
and humans.
Feral swine are included in the Oregon
Invasive Species Council’s list of “100
Worst List” to keep out of Oregon. It is
very important to the Oregon Department
of Fish and Wildlife, the US Department
of Agriculture and the Oregon Department
of Agriculture to eliminate this invasive
non-native species before they become
established.
It is legal to hunt feral swine year round on
public land with a hunting license and there
is no harvest limit. On private property,
feral swine are defined as a “predatory
animal”. Hunting feral swine on private land
does not require a hunting license, but you
must have landowner permission to act at
their agent. It is your responsibility to determine if any swine found meet the definition
of “feral swine”(see definitions page 71).
PLEASE REPORT ANY FERAL SWINE
OBSERVED, KILLED,
OR FERAL SWINE DAMAGE
TO ODFW AT 503-947-6300 OR
1-866-INVADER
DROUGHT, FIRE AND HUNTING
ODFW will not close hunting seasons
as a result of fire danger or active fires.
Fire danger or active fires may cause Rd
closures or result in use restrictions that
impact camping, burning, wood cutting,
hunting and other activities. When drought
leads to severe fire danger, hunters may
not be able to camp in their favorite camp
site, may have to hike farther to reach
favorite hunting areas, or may have to hunt
new areas. Those that traditionally cook
with open fires should prepare to cook
with gas stoves. In the unlikely event that
all access for hunting in a hunt area has
been closed as a result of fire danger or
an active fire, ODFW will evaluate the situation after the season(s) closes. If ODFW
determines hunters lost their opportunity
to hunt, a number of options may be available to provide compensation. Available
options will depend on the season, timing,
duration and extent of fire related impacts
for individual hunts.IV
OBJECTS AND CULTURAL
SITES
HUNTING AND ATV’S
RESPONSIBILITY OR REGULATION?
The Choice is Yours!
Nobody likes regulations; but if
irresponsible ATV use continues to cause
unacceptable impacts, then regulations will
become necessary to ensure protection
of public lands. A better alternative would
be for ATV users to recognize the impacts
their activity can cause and voluntarily
take steps to reduce those impacts. ATV
users are not unique in this respect - as
more and more people use public lands for
recreation, the potential impacts of these
activities are growing fast.
ROAD CLOSURES
There are a number of reasons why
some modes of travel are restricted on
public lands. Reasons for restricting travel
include:
■ Wildlife and Habitat Protection
■ Minimize Conflict Between Users
■ Public Safety
■ Resource Protection
■ Legal Mandates
■ Fire Protection
OREGON OFF-HIGHWAY
VEHICLE LAWS
All ATVs operating on public lands must
display an Oregon ATV Operating Permit.
Please refer to the Oregon Parks &
Recreation website for more information:
www.prd.state.or.us.
Permits can be purchased over the
telephone, through many Oregon State
Parks and Recreation Dept. offices or at
one of their 200 vendors. A current vendor
list is available online at www.prd.state.
or.us. For more information or to purchase
a permit over the telephone, call 1-800551-6949.
Refer to page 21 of this publication for
hunting and ATV regulations.
REDUCE ATV IMPACTS
What you can do to reduce ATV impacts:
■ Know the vehicle use regulations for the
area you are hunting and respect road
and area closures.
■ Avoid the use of ATVs in wet areas or
during wet conditions. Even though
the lighter weight and low-pressure
tires reduce impacts, ATVs can still do
serious damage to wet areas.
INTERESTING FACTS
■ Since 1995, the number of All Terrain
Vehicles (ATVs) in Oregon has
increased fivefold. There are now over
129,000 valid ATV Operating Permits in
the state.
■ Studies have shown that the harvest of
bull elk increases with increased hunter
access. Eventually this can lead to
reduced hunter opportunity.
■ Elk use declines in areas with adjacent
roads open to motorized vehicles.
OBJECTS AND CULTURAL
SITES
Many Indian artifacts and all Indian
burial sites are considered sacred within
Oregon’s Native American culture and
serve as important links to the past. The
Oregon Legislature has recognized the
importance of these sites and artifacts by
passing laws that specifically protect these
areas and items. Digging up cultural sites
is against the law. Taking human remains
or sacred objects from a site can lead to
serious penalties. State and federal laws
covers both private and public land in
Oregon. The state law can be found in
Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) Chapters
97, 358 and 390.
If you should find any Native American
artifacts while out hunting, stop and look
around. REMEMBER, DON’T DISTURB
THESE SITES. Respect and honor these
sites for what they mean to Oregon’s
Native Americans and to Oregon’s rich
cultural background.
HUNTERS: RETURN
RADIO TRANSMITTERS
Radio transmitters used on deer,
elk and other big game animals
are property of ODFW. These
transmitters store valuable
information and are re-usable.
It is legal to harvest an animal
with these transmitters. Please
call your local ODFW office if
you harvest an animal with a
transmitter or find a transmitter.
We thank you for your
cooperation.
Attention
Starkey Experimental
Forest Hunters!
Research designed to evaluate the
response of elk and mule deer to
ATV activity during the hunting
season will continue in the Starkey
Experimental Forest and Range
enclosure in 2015. Successful
applicants for hunts 152B, 252D and
252R must agree to participate in
the research by having a GPS unit
(~1.0 lb) on their person during
each 5-day hunting season and
5-day pre-hunt period when inside
the Starkey enclosure. Hunters
should be aware that only
green dot roads will be open to
ATV use, and road 2120 will be
closed to all motorized access
beyond Rock Spring in the north
half of Starkey. The new changes
in ATV and motorized access will
be in effect five days before each
hunt and through each hunt period.
Hunters should also be aware of
camping restrictions, which limit
camps to within 300 feet of open
(green dot) roads. For further details
of the ATV project and other related
research or to view a map of roads
open during the hunts, please visit
the following websites (www.dfw.
state.or.us or www.fs.fed.us/pnw/

GENERAL HUNTING REGULATIONS
SHOOTING HOURS
■ Game mammals may only be hunted
from 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour
after sunset.
■ Neither landowners nor their agents
need a permit from ODFW to spotlight
predatory animals (as defined in ORS
610.002) on land they own or lawfully
occupy. ODA has authority to define
“agent” for purposes of the predatory
animal statute. Written documentation is
not required. (Predatory Animals means
coyotes, rabbits, rodents and feral
swine which are or may be destructive
to agricultural crops.)
DECOYS
■ Except for purposes of law enforce-
ment or wildlife management, the use of
decoys with moving parts is prohibited
for all big game species. This prohibition
includes, but is not limited to, decoys
with parts that are powered by a motor,
battery, human action (for example,
cable or pull-string), or the wind. Flexible
or adjustable parts that permit placement or adjustment of a decoy but do not
otherwise move do not constitute “moving parts”. This rule is intended to ban
decoys that attract wildlife via movement.
VEHICLES, BOATS, AIRCRAFT, ATVS
No Person Shall:
■ Hunt any wildlife from a motor-propelled
vehicle. Exceptions: 1) A qualified
disabled hunter may obtain an “Oregon
Disabilities Hunting and Fishing Permit”

or on any public Rd or Hwy, or within
Cooperative Travel Management Areas.
2) Landowners and their agents can
shoot predatory animals from motorized
vehicles on land they own or lawfully
occupy.
■ Hunt within eight hours of
communicating with or receiving
information on the location of game
mammals from an aircraft. For the
purpose of this rule “aircraft” includes
unmanned aircraft such as drones.
■ Hunt within 8 hours after having been
transported by helicopter or fixed-wing
aircraft to any point other than an established airport adequate for fixed-wing
aircraft.
■ Shoot at pronghorn antelope from a
point within 50 yards of a motor-propelled vehicle, including aircraft.
Exception: A qualified disabled hunter
may obtain an “Oregon Disabilities
Hunting and Fishing Permit” to hunt
from a motor vehicle except while the
vehicle is in motion or on any public Rd
or Hwy, or within Cooperative Travel
Management Areas.
■ Hunt or harass animals from snowmobile, ATV, or passenger vehicles.
■ (1) Operate a snowmobile or ATV while
carrying a firearm or a bow unless the
firearm is unloaded, or with a bow,
unless all arrows are in a quiver. (2)
Subsection (1) of this section does not
apply to a person who is licensed under
ORD 166.291 and 166.292 to carry
a concealed handgun. (3) As used in
this section, “unloaded” means: (a) If
the firearm is a revolver, that there is
no live cartridge in the chamber that is
aligned with the hammer of the revolver;
(b) if the firearm is a muzzle-loading
firearm, that the firearm is not capped or
primed; or (c) If the firearm is other than
a revolver or a muzzle-loading firearm,
that there is no live cartridge in the
chamber.(Violation of ORS 821.240 is a
Class B traffic violation).
■ Cast an artificial light from a motor vehicle while in possession of a weapon;
or cast an artificial light upon a game
mammal, predatory animal, or livestock
from within 500 feet of a motor vehicle
while in possession of a weapon.

MANDATORY CHECK
FOR ALL BEARS
The skull of any bear taken must be presented to an ODFW office or designated
collection site; the person who took the
animal is responsible to have it presented,
within 10 days of the kill to be checked
and marked. The skull is required to be
checked in for the purpose of inspection,
data gathering, tagging and removal of a
pre-molar tooth for aging. Skull must be
unfrozen when presented for check-in.
Check-in at ODFW offices must occur
during normal business hours (Mon.Fri., 8-5) by appointment. Remember to
call ahead to make arrangements. When
the bear skull is presented at check-in,
information that must be provided includes:
1) date of harvest and location of harvest
including Wildlife Management Unit, and
2) complete hunter information including tag number as found on the bear tag.
Hunter information is on the bear tag; the
bear tag, a copy of the tag, or a completed
“Wildlife Transfer Record Form” (page 87)
are alternatives for providing information.
Hunters must still complete mandatory
reporting via the internet (www.odfw.com/
resources/hunting/reporting) or call toll free
at 1-866-947-ODFW(6339).
By counting rings on sectioned and stained
teeth, biologists can estimate the age of each
bear, and determine if the bear has been
‘marked’ as part of ODFW’s tetracycline
study. This information can then be used to
estimate black bear populations.
This information is important for black bear
management in Oregon. Hunters providing
teeth will be notified of the age of their bear
once laboratory analyses are complete in
about a year. Removing this small tooth will
not affect any taxidermy work you plan to
have done with your trophy.
Reproductive tracts help the department
estimate reproductive rates and litter size
of bear in Oregon. Reproductive tracts are
easiest to collect when field dressing your
bear (see illustration on page 26). Carry a
clean sandwich bag and keep the sample
cooled or frozen to maintain the quality of
this important sample for the department.
Reproductive tracts may be delivered to any
ODFW field office when you check in your
bear.
Report On Your Deer and
Elk Tags by the Deadline
to Avoid $25 Fee!
Hunters that report on time are entered
to win a special big game tag of their
choice (deer, elk or pronghorn antelope).
This special tag allows the hunter an
extended season and expanded hunt area.

LOCATING AND COLLECTING THE REPRODUCTIVE TRACT
FROM A FEMALE BLACK BEAR OR FEMALE COUGAR
1.Label a plastic bag with: Tag
Number, Date of Kill, Unit Number and Name, County, and Your
Name and Address. Ziplock type
kitchen or freezer bags work very
well for this purpose.
2.Locate the “Y” shaped reproductive tract beneath and slightly
ahead of the pelvis or hip bones.
It usually is necessary to move
some of the intestines and other
organs aside to locate the entire
tract, including both ovaries and
the uterus.
3.Cut the uterus immediately forward of the bladder. Use caution
when handling the bladder and
cutting the reproductive tract from
the body cavity to insure the meat
is not contaminated with urine
from the bladder.
4.Place the entire reproductive
tract in the labeled plastic bag and
seal.
5.Preserve specimens by freezing
as soon as possible and submit to
any ODFW district office or check
station.

Cougar hunters are reminded that it is mandatory to provide the reproductive tract of any female cougar taken. The reproductive
tract provides valuable information on the number and frequency of kittens born annually in Oregon and is a critical part of
ODFW’s cougar population models. Carrying a clean, empty sandwich bag while hunting, and keeping the sample cooled or
frozen in an ice chest or refrigerator after collection, is an easy way to maintain the quality of this important sample for the
department. Reproductive tracts may be delivered to any ODFW field office when you check in your cougar.

Modeled Cougar Population
The Heppner Unit elk population rebounded
dramatically after the first year of cougar
removals. In the last five years, the elk
population has risen to slightly above the
management objective.
Steve Cherry, District Wildlife Biologist
COUGAR RESEARCH TO
SUPPORT MANAGEMENT
Cougar population growth rates have slowed since the
2006 Cougar Management Plan went into effect.
COUGAR TARGET AREAS TO HELP BIG GAME
ODFW removed 291* cougars in Heppner, Steens Mtn, Ukiah,
Warner, and Wenaha Units to benefit deer or elk populations (*does
not include cougar taken by hunters or on damage complaints).
The most dramatic results have been in the Heppner and Ukiah
Target Areas:
x Elk calf survival doubled
x Ukiah elk population grew by 500 since 2010
x Heppner elk population grew by 2,200 since 2007
Wildlife managers were not able to measure a population-level
response in deer and elk in Steens Mtn, Warner and Wenaha Units
at this time.
Additional cougar target areas are being considered for 2015.
COUGAR QUOTA INCREASE
x Statewide cougar quota raised to 970, a 25% increase
(beginning 2015)
Don’t forget to buy your cougar tag!
Most cougar are taken when hunters
are pursuing other species. Buy a
cougar tag and be ready.
The ODFW research team has recently published peer-reviewed research on cougar kill
rates and prey selection in northeast Oregon,
cougar survival rates, and estimating cougar
densities using dogs.
What researchers found in northeast Oregon:
x Deer and elk made up 95% of the animals
preyed on by cougar. Of the deer and elk
kills examined:
o More than 2/3 (69%) were deer, just
under 1/3 (31%) were elk
o Almost ½ (47%) of the deer killed were
fawns, ¾ (75%) of the elk killed were
calves
o On average, an adult cougar kills one
deer or elk per week. (Oregon has an
estimated 4,000 adults out of a total
cougar population of 6,000.)
x High levels of hunter harvest can reduce
local cougar populations.
x Benefits of target areas can
last for several years.

HELP OREGON WILDLIFE
Hunters have a long history of supporting and
conserving Oregon’s wildlife. Continue that
tradition by switching to non-lead ammunition.
Non-lead ammunition is available for most rifles,
handguns and shotguns.
High performance non-lead bullets have the
same stopping power as lead, but leave fewer bullet fragments
that can be swallowed by scavengers and other wildlife. Switching
to non-lead ammunition means eagles, scavengers, other wildlife and
humans will not be exposed to lead fragments in game meat.
Lead can be harmful to wildlife and humans. A nationwide ban on lead shot for waterfowl hunting
is credited with saving millions of ducks, geese and waterfowl from lead poisoning. Birds of prey,
scavengers and other wildlife can be harmed by eating meat containing lead fragments.
DO YOUR PART TO HELP OREGON WILDLIFE.
GET THE LEAD OUT.

to specific hunts, odds of drawing a tag and to ensure the actual area you are interested in hunting is within the hunt boundary and is
open for hunting access. ODFW strives to make all information available to all hunters and ODFW will not reinstate preference points or

PAGE
Past, Present and Future
Columbian white-tailed deer were first
described by early pioneers as a common
animal throughout the valleys of western
Oregon and Washington.
The Columbian white-tailed deer was
first recognized as endangered in 1967
and listed under the Federal Endangered
Species Act in 1973 and under the Oregon
Endangered Species Act in 1987. Two
populations remain; one in the Umpqua
Basin near Roseburg and one along the
lower Columbia River. Oregon populations
recovered sufficiently since listing to be
removed from the state Endangered
Species list in 1995. Efforts by ODFW,
other state and federal agencies, Douglas
County and private landowners have led
to the removal of the Roseburg population
of the Columbian white-tailed deer from
the federal Endangered Species List.
Management authority for this population
has been moved from the federal
government to Oregon Department of Fish
and Wildlife and continues to be monitored
after delisting.
There are no changes to regulations
regarding protection of Columbian
white-tailed deer at this time. In 2014, six
(6) controlled hunts (2 rifle, 1 muzzleloader,
2 archery and 1 youth), which allow the
taking of Columbian white-tailed deer will be
offered in the Roseburg area. A very limited

DEER  CONTROLLED 600 SERIES DEER HUNTS
TAG SALE DEADLINE is day before the hunt begins. For hunts with more than one hunt period,
the tag sale deadline is the day before the earliest opening date. Favorable winter weather conditions
may lead to deer populations exceeding population management objectives in many units. In that case,
biologists will recommend antlerless deer hunts where deer exceed the ecological and/or social carrying
capacity of a unit. Antlerless deer hunting is an important management tool to keep populations and their
habitats healthy. Unanticipated hunts in response to populations exceeding objective will be publicly
announced by Apr. 15. All such hunts will have a unique hunt number and will be available for the big
game drawing if approved by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. Most of the antlerless deer hunts
recommended for eastern Oregon are in response to specific animal damage situations.

NOTE: The “2014 1st Choice Applicants” column is not influenced by preference points; it only indicates the number of first choice applicants for each hunt.
NOTE: White-tailed deer are protected in all units west of the eastern boundaries of Santiam, McKenzie, Indigo, Dixon and Rogue units,

WALLOWA COUNTY IS A
HAY QUARANTINE AREA
It is unlawful to transport uncertified hay, straw, or grass (whether baled, chopped, or cubed) into or within, Wallowa County for use on
public lands or private lands, except if you have permission from the landowner.
To be legal, feed must meet the certification requirements of the North American Weed Management Association (NAWMA).
The reasons for this ordinance are: noxious weeds are being introduced to big game and livestock ranges; farmers, the county, ODFW,
and other landowners area are spending thousands of dollars for weed control/ an effort is being made to reduce chemical use; and
weeds have destroyed major wildlife habitat areas in surrounding states and counties.
Wallowa Co is asking all hunters, campers, and landowners to cooperate in this effort. Hay will be available at the Hay Station in
Minam, at Wallowa, Enterprise, and Joseph. The Hay Station will be open three days prior to the Controlled Buck Deer, Second Season
Bull Elk, and Controlled Antlerless Elk seasons and four days prior to the First Bull Elk season. For more information call the Wallowa
Co Vegetation Manager 541-426-3332; Wallowa Co Extension 541-426-3143; or the Wallowa Mt Visitor Center 541-426-4978.

The “First Time” program guarantees that
youth hunters will be eligible to receive up
to three tags: one buck deer (100 series),

antlerless elk (200 series). It is one of
many programs ODFW has in response
to increased demand for youth hunting
opportunities.
WHO MAY APPLY:
■ Oregon residents age 12 to 17. See
www.dfw.state.or.us/education/hunter
for Hunter Education requirements.
Youths 11 years old may apply if they

may not hunt with
“First Time” tags once they turn age 18.

choice (TAG NUMBERS FOR THE
HUNT MUST MEET THE MINIMUM
TAG AUTHORIZATION LEVEL).
No additional fee is required for this

Elk hoof disease – Report sightings
online
If you see or harvest
a lame elk with hoof
deformities, please report it online (see odfw.com under
Hunting/Hot Topics) or email [email protected] /
call 1-866-968-2600
Hoof disease has been a problem for southwest Washington
elk since 2007. It is a bacterial-associated syndrome that
causes severe lameness in elk. Elk with the disease have
deformed and overgrown or broken sloughed hooves,
abscesses in the hoof soles and chronic laminitis.
ODFW wildlife veterinary staff and biologists are
keeping a close eye on Oregon’s elk.
More information at www.odfw.com
purchase the tag from a license
agent a few days after their application
is processed.
■ Tags must be purchased by the day
before the season starts.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:
■ A youth loses eligibility for a “First
Time” tag in a hunt series once they are
successful for any hunt choice in that
series (including youth hunts and LOP
tags), except for leftover tags.
■ Preference points will not be lost if
participating in the “First Time” program.
■ Youth that have applied for Point
Savers in the same hunt series for
the same year are NOT eligible for a
guaranteed “First Time” tag.
■ Applications must be received before
the hunt begins.
■ Adults who apply in a party with a youth
in the controlled hunt drawing and are
unsuccessful will not receive tags if the
youth requests a “First Time” tag.
■ Youth can use their “First Time” options
in any combination (all in one year, one
per year, skip years between tags).
■ Youth can hunt in general seasons and
use leftover tags if available without
losing eligibility for “First Time” tag.
However, “First Time” tags are not
extra tags. Youth are still limited to the
maximum number of tags per species
(series) per year. For example, a youth
can possess only one controlled buck
deer tag or one general rifle deer tag
or one general bow deer tag and one
leftover tag if available.
■ Other hunters with appropriate tags
may hunt with youth.
■ Youths participating in the “First Time”
program are not eligible to participate in
the Mentored Youth Hunter Program for
that particular hunt for that year.
■ For more information, call 503-9476100.
Elk hunters –
Don’t Shoot a Moose!
Moose continue to expand their range through out the
western states including Oregon. A resident population
of 50-60 moose now occupies portions of the Walla
Walla and Wenaha Wildlife Management Units north
of Elgin. Moose are also frequently sighted in adjacent
management units particularly the Sled Springs,
Chesnimnus, Snake River, Imnaha and Pine Creek
Wildlife Management
Units.
Moose
are
generally larger than
elk and vary in color
from dark brown to
black;
nevertheless,
moose are occasionally
mistaken for other
big game species,
particularly elk. There
are no hunts for moose,
but moose occur where
there are elk hunts.
ODFW is reminding
hunters to be sure of
their target.

CONTROLLED HUNT Application procedures: Please read pages 10-12. Hunters should apply for more
than one hunt choice. If your first choice hunt is cancelled, you will receive a postcard describing your hunt
choice options. See page 12 for further information. You may submit only 1 application for elk (200 series)
hunts. This may include bull, either-sex, or antlerless elk (200 series) hunts.
CAUTION TO HUNTERS: Obtaining a tag does not guarantee a place to hunt! Some hunts in these
regulations are comprised mostly or entirely of private lands and are printed in red. ODFW tries to design
hunts to provide public access; however, in areas where this is not possible, it is the hunter’s responsibility

The Fish and Wildlife Commission will not set actual tag numbers for hunts listed here until June 2015. Tag numbers currently shown,
for your reference, were those allocated for 2014 or estimated for new 2015 hunts. Actual tag numbers for 2015 may be higher or
lower than those listed based on population conditions. NOTE: As a hunter it is your responsibility to ensure the hunts you apply for
(all choices in all series) are hunts you want to participate in. It is your responsibility to monitor your preference points, tags allocated
to specific hunts, odds of drawing a tag and to ensure the actual area you are interested in hunting is within the hunt boundary and is
open for hunting access. ODFW strives to make all information available to all hunters and ODFW will not reinstate preference points or
change tags because the tag you drew is not the one you wanted or expected.
HUNT AREA: Entire wildlife management unit unless indicated by an asterisk(*). A map will be sent if indicated in hunt description by
[MAP]. Landowner preference tags available, see page 13. Please note additional closure areas listed on pages 80-85 that may affect
your hunt area.

COOPERATIVE TRAVEL MANAGEMENT AREAS
Through cooperative agreement, motor vehicle use is limited to specific roads for dates and areas listed below. Maps of most areas will be
available by Sept. We do not carry maps of areas that are easily plotted on forestry maps. Old maps should not be relied on because roads
open to vehicles may change. There are two methods of posting roads for motorized travel: 1) Negative marking in which closed roads are
marked by signs, gates, berms, designated on maps, etc. 2) Positive marking in which open roads are marked by round green reflectors
(areas below where round green reflectors are used are indicated by a •), orange carsonite posts, designated on maps, etc. Note: A TMA
may use more than one method, for example TMAs with positive markings may also use signs for some situations, such as confusing
intersections. No person shall shoot from or across a public Rd or railroad right-of-way, except that persons legally hunting on closed
Rds within Cooperative Travel Management Areas (TMAs) are not violating current prohibitions on shooting from or across a public
Rd. The same is true for other Rds closed to use of motor vehicles by the public (See WA Regs. pages 83-85). There are additional
travel management programs being implemented by other public agencies and private landowners. ODFW has no information for Rd
closures not listed on these pages. Hunters need to contact the land management agency or landowner to determine the extent of
such closures before going hunting.* Signifies TMAs that have maps.

MASTER HUNTER PROGRAM
The Master Hunter Program is an
advanced hunter education program
designed to help hunters increase their
knowledge and help them understand
concerns of private landowners. The
program’s objectives are:
■ Foster positive relationships between
hunters and private landowners.
■ Increase hunting access to private
lands by giving landowners a way
to identify hunters who have had
advanced training.
■ Improve the hunting experience for
graduates.
■ Improve the public image of hunters.
The program includes a home study
course, a 4-hour class that includes a
written test, a test of firearms proficiency,
and a requirement to perform 20 hours of
volunteer service that benefits Oregon’s
natural resources.
A fish and wildlife violation background
check will be conducted prior to
certification, and no person with a
violation in the past 5 years will be
allowed to graduate. Additional checks
will be conducted each time a certified
Master Hunter applies for special hunting
privileges. Any conviction or plea of guilt
to a wildlife violation (including angling
violations) will result in a five year
suspension from the program.
