Accessibility of BLM, NF, NFW?

Hey all this my first time hunting in Oregon. I think i've found a couple decent spots and had no problem getting there. I was just looking at the BLM map of the area and it dond on me that to get to the spots i must have left NF lands and entered private land via the fire roads. A lot of these areas are "checker board" private/public, and to get to some of the public land there is no other route then to go over the, white private land squares. I'm wondering if these roads will still be accessable come the hunting seasons. Any help?

lol, if ur talking about tonights game... it aint over yet. i'm looking @ the land just north of 20 @ house rock campground . From there to the middle santiam wilderness is that "checkerboard" of private and public land. i drove through there no problem a month ago and don't really remember any gates. I'd hate to have a spot in mind, get up there and end up not being able to get through. love to have some piece of mind from someone who has drove through there during hunting season.

Over now! I think we're watching the warm up to the Series right now. Don't know what team can handle either one of them at this point! Good luck!

Private Land Hunting

Good Afternoon,

I am knew to this site and to this computer stuff, but it seems to be a good source for information.
I live in Western Wa and have hunted up in the Forks area but have had some bad experiences the last couple years and want to head east.

I took a drive over to Coulee and found some great private land but it seems no one wants to give out permission.

Does anyone have any ideas or know of a property owner who is open to letting someone knew into their property.

Thanks chuck

Nope, you cannot cross private land without landowners permission. Good luck getting that as most are charging hunters and using the landlock BLM as private reserve. Welcome to Oregon.
This is why the East Biggs Unit is so easy to draw,because there is no where to hunt. Well there is but you have to public land choices and hunters stacked up like firewood. Fossil Unit isnt awhole lot better either.
