May 15th

Just a reminder to anyone putting in for the draws in Oregon that May 15th is the deadline. This year should be a good year of hunting.

Sean,The only actual tag I

Sean,

The only actual tag I put in for was a doe tag, other than that I just put in for points aagin. I'm only a couple years away from drawing the top deer/elk tags in the state. I plan to just hunt with a OTC archery tag again for everything. with a few mild winters in a row and fawn/calf survival rates really good the past few years the hunt this fall is shaping up to be very good.

Cool.  I am just doing the local OTC archery tag, and maybe a doe tag.  I might try to squeeze a trip over to hunt Coues with BikerRN for a couple days, but other than that, I will have to put off travel hunting until next fall.

nope

All doe tags are draw only and the deadline was May 15th, New this year you can buy a point after the may 15th deadline. The only OTC deer tags are western oregon buck tags.

Thank you for the

Thank you for the clarification numbnuts. I'll be picking up my point when I get up there in 22 days. Who's counting?? Hahaha. Would the Redmond/Bend area be considered the western area? I'll be studying maps soon, but just curious. Thanks again.

No problem, If you need any

No problem, If you need any more info just let me know. I guess I could mention if you archery hunt some of the units have a bag limit of one deer so you could shoot a doe if you had your heart set on a doe. Like Don said Bend/ Redmond is considered "eastern oregon" in the regulations and all areas on the eastside are draw only for deer/elk. unless you bow hunt than 90% of the state is open with the OTC bow tag.
