Hunting near Corvallis, OR

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum. I'm 21 years old and I go to Oregon State University. I've been living in Corvallis for a couple of years, but this will be the first deer season I will actually hunt around here. I've driven around some areas (Kings Valley and Blodgett I think) but I don't know much about hunting here. I'm from the coast (Astoria) so I'm used to hunting these types of woods.

I'm not looking for anyone's hot spot but any information about good places to go in the area would be greatly appreciated. I here that Valsetz is a good area. Are most of these woods public or private? If private, who owns them and how do I get permission to hunt?

Thanks in advance for any help and I hope I can be a contributing member of this forum!

Welcome to BGH Brian!

I lived in Valsetz in the mid 60's and again in the early 70's. Hunting was good. Another area it was good when I was in school was up in Black Rock behind Falls City. In Falls City you'll find a bridge. At that bridge, you cross it you go to Valsetz, go straight to Black Rock.

If you dont mind slug hunting, I actually pulled a 3 point outa EE Wilson a few years back. Across the highway, OSU has some tree farms, brother in law was succesfull in there a few years back also.
Havnt hunted over there in a couple of years so not real sure on current status.

Was talking to brother n law earlier before season started, he was saying the luckymaute area has a few bucks running around, might try there too.

Don has good advice for Fall City. Have heard lots of success stories coming outa there.

Good Luck,
WiskeyJaR
