Well I got the ol' goose egg on my usual tags out on the eastern side of the state, so it looks like I am going to try my hand at the Western General season tags for Deer and Elk.
I've also relocated from Central Oregon to Hillsboro for a new job back in April, so I get to learn a whole new area.
Given the fact I wont have much but weekends off I am looking for places I can get to relatively easily from where I live now. Maybe out past Forest Grove, or even out Seaside way as my inlaws live out that way.
I'm accustomed to hunting blacktail as I have hunted the last 16 years in the Hood unit up behind Hood River. I am a backpowder hunter and would prefer to stay that way. So any areas you can suggest for that would be great.
However I am not opposed to breaking out my 30-06 or 300 Win Mag.
So where are some good area I can scout to find me Fred (blacktail buck) and Leroy (Bull Elk), on the general season tags.
Thanks in advance!
