    Spike only? or horns?
    East or west? (or north central)
    Good luck with the new brace. Heck I may see you up there if its the same unit I hunt, and if I get work and can afford to go.

    I think you mis-read the regs.(unless one visible antler is how you describe spike only) The area you described is a ''spike only/ one visible un branched antler'' hunt for second (general) season. Hood, Maupin, White River, and part of Biggs unit west of the John Day river are the only general season rifle ''any bull/ one bull with visible antler'' (no point restriction) hunts offered for Central-Eastern Oregon. (PAGE 63). see units colored orange.
    The good news is that your general ''East side''season tag is not unit specific, so you can hunt most of central, and eastern oregon as long as you abide by that units requirements. But if you want any bull, youll have to go to hood, maupin, white river, or part of biggs with your tag.
    I appologise if thats what you meant, and you were talking about spike hunting. If not, well then at least you found out now rather than from johnny law after the fact. Good luck on your hunt.
