Yes sir I'm hunting oregon. I havent really ventured outof state for hunting. I cant really jusify spending the money when we have such great hunting here. its kinda like the hidden gem of the west. (shhh dont tell anyone)
I told everyone. lol, I dont think you could keep it a secret anymore. I have a bud that lives in Oregon and he has invited me a time or two.l But I keep getting lucky enough in AZ. One of these days I will be there.
One sister lives in Eugene, and another in Lebanon for now, but she also owns property in Aumsville. I was just out there last August, and my sister in Lebanon has access to a house on the coast and we stayed there for a few days as well. Very pretty, and we could walk down the cliffs to the beach and all. Collected some agates on the beach while there too... ;-)
My father had also retired there before he passed some years ago, and lived in Cottage Grove.
Actually, one of my wife's sisters lives in Oregon too, but I don't recall where and we're not in touch much. All I remember is that they have a potato farm of some kind.
The record books, that are put out by Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young and where I live is Henry Kelsey they are a great way to research a state or a province for big game. This does take some time but the knowledge it gives you, can be very valuable. Not all hunters have their trophies recorded, as where I live after the Hanson Buck became the new world record typical Whitetail, we saw a flood of hunters and now that has happened, some hunters are shying away from the record books but...
