Central Oregon

Is anyone familiar with hunting in Central Oregon? I live in Crook County. I am an avid hunter who likes hunting anything from predators and rabbits to deer and elk. Also hunt alot of game birds. There is alot of public hunting land here for hunters to enjoy. Recently I hunted the National Grasslands in Jefferson county. There are alot of good rabbit hunting there.
Let me know of your experience hunting in C. O.
Thanks.

Welcome to BGH. Do you live in Prineville? Out between there and Madras, Grizzly, are still supposed to be pigs. I haven't hunted that country a lot but have heard there were a lot of rabbits and coyotes. Saw on ifish where someone went up behind Haystach Res. and got into a lot of rabbits and a few coyotes. There's a horse campground up there they were probably fairly close to.

My knowledge of the area is pretty restricted to Boyce Corral area as I used to field trial there. Now I stick pretty close to home, Antelope. Not a lot of stuff around here anymore and most is closed off by private land. Two ranches, one a big mone sold in the past year or so to outside people, from the valley, and they shut them down.

If you like birds, I've heard of good grouse hunting out the end of McKay Rd in Prineville.

South and east of Bend are supposed to be coyote hot spots. South of Lapinr and around Ft Rock, Christmas Valley area.
