Attention youth Hunters: Extended Western Oregon Deer Season

 

deer – controlled 100 series hunts

Tag sale deadline: The day before the hunt begins.

Controlled hunt application procedures: Please read Licenses, Controlled Hunt Applications and Tags.

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 Cooperative Travel Management Areas for road closure information.

Controlled deer hunts: You may submit only one application for the 100 series hunt numbers below. 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. See Licenses, Controlled Hunt Applications and Tags for further information.

Note: The “2015 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 during eastern Oregon con­trolled buck deer centerfire firearm seasons without a valid deer tag for that time period and area. This does not include the Controlled W High Cascade or Hood-White Rvr buck deer centerfire firearm hunts that occur Sept. 10 – Sept. 18. See page 27 for exceptions.

The Fish and Wildlife Com­mis­sion will not set actual tag numbers for hunts listed here until June 2016. Tag numbers currently shown, for your reference, were those allocated for 2015 or estimated for new 2016 hunts. Actual tag numbers for 2016 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 Licenses, Controlled Hunt Applications and Tags.

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

Columbian White-tailed Deer

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 2016, 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 number of tags will be offered. White-tailed deer continue to be protected in all western Oregon except for the Umpqua controlled hunt numbers 123A, 123R1 and North Bank Habitat controlled hunt numbers 123B, 123M2, 123R2, 623T1.

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife continues to live trap and transplant Columbian white-tailed deer from Douglas County into parts of their historic range in unoccupied areas of Western Oregon. All of western Oregon will continue to be closed to hunting Columbian white-tailed deer, except in the controlled hunt areas near Roseburg. The department anticipates that additional hunting opportunity may be offered in future years if populations remain healthy and new populations are re-etablished in historic range. For additional information contact the ODFW Roseburg office at 541-440-3353.

Controlled 600 Series Deer Hunts

Application Deadline Date: May 15, 2016 Applicants may apply singly or as a party of no more than 18 persons

Tag sale deadline: The deadline is the 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.

Controlled Hunt Application Procedures: Please read Licenses, Controlled Hunt Applications and Tags. All antlerless deer hunts are controlled hunts where the number of hunters is limited and tags are awarded through a public drawing. 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 Licenses, Controlled Hunt Applications and Tags for further information.

Youth Controlled Hunts for Deer: Controlled deer hunts for youth are listed below.

Caution to Hunters: Obtaining a tag does not guarantee a place to hunt! Some hunts in these regulations are composed mostly or entirely of private lands and are printed in red. ODFW tries to design hunts to provide public access; however, in some areas this is not possible. It is the hunter’s responsibility to obtain access to hunt on private property. In areas with high percentages of private land, please make sure you have a place to hunt before you apply for a tag.

Tags: The Fish and Wildlife Commission will not set actual tag numbers for hunts listed here until June 2016. Tag numbers currently shown, for your reference, were those allocated for 2015 or estimated for new 2016 hunts. Actual tag numbers for 2016 may be higher or lower than those listed based on pop­u­la­tion conditions.

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, Licenses, Controlled Hunt Applications and Tags. Please note additional closure areas listed on Cooperative Travel Management Areas that may affect your hunt area.

Notes:

  • The “2015 1st Choice Applicants” column is not in­flu­enced by preference points; it only in­di­cates the number of first choice ap­pli­cants for each hunt.
  • White-tailed deer are protected in all units west of the eastern boundaries of Santiam, McKenzie, Indigo, Dixon and Rogue units, except for the Umpqua hunts (123A, 123R1) and North Bank Habitat hunts (123B, 123M2, 123R2, 623T1) listed above and below.

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

NORTHWEST AREA HUNTS

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.

Youth First Time Hunt Program

Application Period Begins July 1

(Use application form at dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/youth_hunting_opportunities.asp)

Guaranteed Big Game Hunting Opportunities for Youth 12-17 Years Old

The “First Time” program guarantees that youth hunters will be eligible to receive up to three tags: one buck deer (100 series), one antlerless deer (600 series) and one 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 will be 12 by the time they hunt. Youths may not hunt with “First Time” tags once they turn age 18.
  • To qualify for the “Youth First Time Hunt Program the youths must have applied in the Controlled Hunt Drawing for a hunt in hunt series 100, 200, or 600 (deadline May 15; see page 10) and been unsuccessful in the drawing. Qualified applicants must submit a “First Time Hunt Application,” see dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/youth_hunting_opportunities.asp or call 503-947-6100 for application and details. If in a previous year, the youth has been successful in one of the following hunt series 100, 200 or 600 they are no longer eligible to participate in the “Youth First Time Hunt Program” for that hunt series.

Important: The youth “first time” hunt program is not limited to just controlled youth hunts; however not all hunts are included in the program. Each hunt must meet a minimum tag allocation to be available to “First Time” hunters:

Hunt SeriesMin. Tag Level
Buck Deer (100 series)at least 201 tags

Elk (200 series)-antlerless onlyat least 51tags

Antlerless deer (600 series)at least 51 tags

How it Works:

  • If youth meet the criteria above, mail or fax a Youth “First Time” Program Hunt application (see dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/youth_hunting_opportunities.asp for application) to request a tag of their choice (TAG NUMBERS FOR THE HUNT MUST MEET THE MINIMUM TAG AUTHORIZATION LEVEL). No additional fee is required for this application.
  • Applications must be received before the hunt begins.
  • Enter up to five hunt choices per hunt series to ensure receipt of an eligible hunt (see min. tag level, per hunt series above).
  • Youth will be assigned a tag in the first eligible hunt listed and be able to 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 503-947-6100.
