Deer Controlled 100 Series Hunts

Hunting Regulations Icon Oregon Hunting

 

Tag sale deadline: The day before the hunt begins.

Controlled hunt application procedures-

Hunters: Please be sure you have access to a place to hunt before you apply for a tag. Always ask permission first to hunt on private lands, respect these properties and be sure to leave gates as you found them. Many units have road closures that will be in effect during hunting seasons. See road closure information.

Controlled deer hunts: You may submit only one application for the 100 series hunt numbers. Successful applicants who purchase their controlled hunt tag may not purchase a general season deer tag. The W High Cascade (119A) or Hood-White Rvr (141A) centerfire firearm buck hunt, tags allow hunting in general seasons as described in the hunt area descriptions of those hunts.

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.

Notes: The “2016 1st Choice Applicants” column is not in­flu­enced by preference points; it only in­di­cates the number of first choice ap­pli­cants for each hunt.

Regulations: It is unlawful to hunt with a centerfire or muzzleloading rifle without a valid (used or unused) deer or elk tag for certain time periods and areas.

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.

Tag numbers listed are the 2017 tag numbers authorized by the Fish and Wildlife Commission.

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

Private lands will limit access for highlighted hunts. Do not apply unless you have access to a place to hunt.
