Controlled 200 Series Elk Centerfire Firearm

Application deadline date: May 15, 2017 Applicants may apply singly or as a party of no more than 18.

Tag sale deadline: The day before the hunt begins.

Controlled hunt application procedures: 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. You may submit only 1 application for elk (200 series) hunts. This may include bull, either-sex, or antlerless elk (200 series) hunts. Successful applicants who purchase their controlled elk hunt tag may not purchase a general season elk tag.

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 highlighted 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 to obtain access to hunt on private property. Refer to Rd closure information.

Note: 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 elk tag for that time period and area during: Cascade bull elk centerfire firearm season, Coast bull elk centerfire firearm seasons, or Rocky Mt bull elk or either-sex centerfire firearm seasons or standard Rocky Mt antlerless elk centerfire firearm seasons (Nov. 18 – Nov. 26).

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. Please note additional closure areas listed that may affect your hunt area.

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

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.

Elk Hoof Disease

ODFW is asking hunters to watch for limping or elk with abnormal hooves hoof disease. Report sightings to the ODFW’s elk hoof disease online reporting page http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/health_program/elk_hoof_disease/ or call or email ODFW’s Wildlife Health Lab (1-866-968-2600 / Wildlife.Health@state.or.us). Hoof Disease is often related to a bacterial infection causing severe lameness in elk resulting in deformed, overgrown, infected, or sloughed hooves (www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/health_program/elk_hoof_disease/” see more photos at http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/health_program/docs/ElkHoofDiseaseFactSheetFinal.pdf). Hunters finding hoof abnormalities in their harvested animals are asked to take pictures and save all hooves of elk with hoof deformities. Hoof disease does not affect the meat of elk harvested by hunters and poses no risk to human health. However, lame elk may be in poorer body condition and appear thin.
