I'm not looking for specific areas, but would really like to know some general areas northeastern/central/etc. that tpyically produces nice animal. Any help would be great. This would be my first time hunting in orgeon, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

northeastern oregon has great deer/elk numbers, and on the west side towards the coast range. eastside is controlled hunts meaning its a lottery draw, westside is otc for the most part. Are you a resident?

I've been hunting here for 38 yrs...other than a couple of nice blacktail I've harvested off my own property, I'm still looking too.

Most people I know that hunt Alaska, Montana, Wyoming or Colorado say they'll never hunt Oregon again...not to disuade you but huntin' here is NOT easy to score well & /or often
