Attention youth Hunters: Extended Western Oregon Deer Season

To increase youth hunting opportunity, the Western Oregon general buck deer Any Legal Weapon season is extended two days for youth 12-17 years of age. Youth hunters with an unfilled General Any Legal Weapon Western Oregon deer tag or an unfilled W. High Cascade (119A) controlled hunt tag may hunt the area of the Western Oregon General Buck Deer season Nov. 5-6, 2022. This opportunity is not available to Mentored Youth Hunt Program participants as each youth hunter must have their own tag to participate. The tag sale deadline is Sept. 30, 2022. Bag limit: One buck with visible antler.

Archery Seasons

Drought, Fire, and Hunting

  • Hunters should be aware of drought conditions and risk of fire in their hunting units
  • ODFW will not close hunting seasons due to drought or fire
  • Landowners/managers control access, so check on access and road closure information in advance
  • If all access to a hunt unit is closed due to fire restrictions and ODFW determines hunters lost their opportunity to hunt, ODFW will evaluate the situation after the season(s) close
  • If ODFW determines compensation for lost access is warranted, ODFW will notify the affected hunters of their options
