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.
In the winter months, when the tempurature drops well below freezing, it gets harder to stay warm enough to be comfortable. Yes, wool socks are better than cotton but; battery powered heated socks are even better. And yet our feet end up cold at some point anyways. When we are hunting we are usally trying to be as still as possible, for as long as possible. The problem is, when we aren't moving, our blood circulation slows down. We especially lose...
