Elk NetworkOregon Hunters Invited to Weigh In on Big Game Hunting

Conservation | February 7, 2020

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) wants to hear what resident big game hunters think about current hunting seasons in Oregon.


For the last several years, ODFW has been working to review and improve big game hunting seasons and associated regulations. “This year we are planning on reviewing our primary deer and elk hunting seasons, which includes general archery and rifle (any legal weapon) seasons,” says Nick Myatt, the ODFW watershed manager leading the review for the agency.


“Before we start developing proposed changes to 2021 hunting seasons, we want to collect input from Oregon resident hunters on what their current experiences are with these seasons, what changes they would like to see considered, and what other issues are important to them,” Myatt added.


The deadline to submit public input is March 3, 2020. Go here to leave a comment.
