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 2017, 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.

A message from the Oregon department of forestry

Oregon’s State Forests are welcoming destinations for a wide variety of hunters. The Oregon Department of Forestry would like to partner with hunters to promote stewardship of forest resources and a positive image of hunting. You can help by planning your visit so that you:

  • Leave your campsite better than you found it. Pack out garbage and straw materials used in your campsite, disperse your fire pit, move carcasses into the brush, and make sure any human waste is removed or buried at least 6 inches below the top layer of soil.
  • Schedule your trip within State Forest stay limits. The stay limit in State Forests is 21 days out of any 35 day period, with a maximum of 60 camping days within a calendar year. Your stay limit countdown starts when you set up your trailer, tent, or leave personal possessions at a campsite.
  • Remember homesteading is for private property. Temporary structures such as canvas outfitter tents are fine but State Forest regulations prohibit building trails, roads and permanent structures such as cabins and outhouses.

Thank-you for partnering with the Oregon Department of Forestry to protect the valuable natural resource that are Oregon’s State Forests for all who visit them to enjoy.

Deer General Bow Seasons – END

Controlled 600 Series Deer Hunts

Application Deadline Date: May 15, 2017 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:  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.

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.

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 that may affect your hunt area.

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

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

NORTHWEST AREA HUNTS

NOTE: 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)

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.

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.
