Cooperative Travel Management Areas

Through cooperative agreement, motor vehicle use, including electric assisted bicycles, is limited to specific roads for dates and areas listed below. Maps of most areas will be available by Sept. We do not carry maps of areas that are easily plotted on forestry maps. Old maps should not be relied on because roads open to vehicles may change.

There are two methods of posting roads for motorized travel:

  1. Negative marking in which closed roads are marked by signs, gates, berms, designated on maps, etc.
  2. Positive marking in which open roads are marked by round green reflectors (areas below where round green reflectors are used are highlighted in green), orange carsonite posts, designated on maps, etc.

A TMA may use more than one method, for example TMAs with positive markings may also use signs for some situations, such as confusing intersections. No person shall shoot from or across a public Rd or railroad right-of-way, except that persons legally hunting on closed Rds within Cooperative Travel Management Areas (TMAs) are not violating current prohibitions on shooting from or across a public Rd. The same is true for other Rds closed to use of motor vehicles by the public (See WA Regs. Regulations for State Wildlife Areas). There are additional travel management programs being implemented by other public agencies and private landowners. ODFW has no information for Rd closures not listed on these pages. Hunters need to contact the land management agency or landowner to determine the extent of such closures before going hunting.

* Signifies TMAs that have maps. Maps are available in map boxes at TMA entrances, and online at dfw.state.or.us/maps

Access and Habitat “Welcome to Hunt”, “Access Area” Regulations

The Department, through the Access and Habitat (A&H) Program, provides hunting access to approximately 35 “Access Areas” on private land.

In Access Areas funded by the Access and Habitat Program that are Welcome to Hunt, hunters are required to follow the area regulations printed on the map produced by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for each Access Area. Specific regulations for each Access Area can be found through the Oregon Hunting Map at: oregonhuntingmap.com.

Maps are also available in map boxes at TMA entrances, and online at myodfw.com/articles/hunting-private-lands-access-habitat-program

Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) grant provides access to 250,000 acres of Northeast Oregon timberlands. Access & Habitat license dollars along with funds from the NRCS are providing year round public access to 250,000 acres of private timberlands managed by Hancock Forest Management in northeast Oregon. The purpose of the NRCS Voluntary Public Access and Habitat Incentive Program grant, funded by the 2014 Farm Bill, is to encourage owners and operators of privately –held farm, ranch and forest land to voluntary make that land available for access to the public for wildlife dependent recreation including hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing.

Dogs on Dept Lands

The following rules apply to all Department owned, managed, or controlled areas:

  • All dogs must be kept on a leash, except:
    • While accompanied by a licensed hunter when being used to hunt game birds, including while going to or coming from hunting locations;
    • In a posted dog training area;
    • While the dog is under direct control in a posted parking area, designated campground or on a road currently open to public motor vehicle traffic; or
    • As otherwise specified in 635-008-0112, 0147, 0190, 0211.
