+1. I agree 100% about the rest of our critters being poorly managed. Heck even the bears are poorly managed, but there are so dang many that you can find a big one more often than not.
The Deer, and Elk, etc, on the other hand are so overpressured, and poorly managed that true trophy grade animals are few and very far between here.
Ill hunt Idaho if I want a quality hunt on trophy game. I would not even bother wasting/donating my $ to ODFW now for a draw if your out of state. They just raised the prices and for what?????!!!!!!!???? I had a talk w/ ODFW and the only reason he could come up with was because they havent had an increase in 6 years......... wow, like Im supposed to be impressed, and agree that they need one now?.... NO WAY! Make those iddiots earn it If they wanna raise prices! Im a very unsatisfied Oregon resident and hunter. Maybe thats why I like Bear hunting so much......... Its the only critter left in Oregon that you can hunt with an OTC tag with a rifle and expect to get a trophy.
So ya, Bear huntin rocks in Oregon, the rest sucks especially compared to states like Idaho, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, etc.
