Other than yourself I don't know of anyone that applies out there yet. I will be planning to come out and hunt blacktail at some point in the future but I think you mentioned before that applications are not required for that tag. I'm not sure but I will be asking a lot of questions when I'm up there fishing soon.
Thanks for the heads up and good luck on all of yours.
Yes there is OTC elk and deer tags, Blacktail in western oregon is almost all OTC and most western elk is OTC, there are some ok hunts for OTC elk in western oregon, The seasons are in mid October so you have to bust your butt to find them but if you hunt on private timber land on the coast you can find them in the clear cuts at dawn and late afternoon. The cascades hunts are pretty hard hunting, the elk are so scatered there hard to find without doing some serious scouting.
For most on here there is a dream trip floating up around in their heads but there is a question of how to pay for it. This has been a problem for all hunters that wish for that elusive moose, bear, goat, sheep, elk, deer, or any other hunt where you are required to hire a guide or you choose to hire one for that hunt of a lifetime.
First off I am not a financial planner I am just a hunter that learned a long time ago that even with a great job there are going to be some...
