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.
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 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.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
