Western Oregon Fee Pheasant Hunts

Special pheasant hunts are scheduled at the following locations. Birds will be stocked throughout the season. To participate in these hunts, each hunter must have in possession a valid hunting license, upland game bird validation, and Western Oregon fee pheasant permit. See license requirements for age exceptions. Each permit will allow harvest of two rooster pheasants. Multiple permits may be purchased. Upon taking a pheasant, each hunter shall immediately record such taking on the permit in ink or electronically record harvest. All hunters are required to check in and out of hunt areas at self-service stations located on each area and carry the daily hunt permit while in the field. Hunter numbers will be limited at any one time to 150 on the E.E. Wilson WA and 75 on the Sauvie Island WA. The possession or use of any shot other than federally-approved nontoxic shot is prohibited at all times. New to Fee Pheasant hunting, see Pheasant Hunting.
