thanks winmag i just viewed most of the licenses at oregons hunting regs site . boy your state rocks it looked like most everything including elk was OTC I think elk was $500.50 thats right their with colorado but i don't think that there bull is OTC not sure anyways . what kind of mule deer and elk do you have compared to colorado ??OTC (non resident)-
for a ttl of $323.00 for being legal, plus your personal travel/food. They have a Boat rental in Richland if you wanna be lazy and spot from the river (only works this time of year when the wild fruit is ripe). Dont know how much boat rental costs.
Deer and Elk OTC is only in the swamp on the west side, except for a few units on the Central, and East side. Most Elk OTC tags are spike only. There are exceptions of course, but usually if you want OTC for big Rocky Mountain Bulls your stuck flingin pointy sticks.thanks winmag i just viewed most of the licenses at oregons hunting regs site . boy your state rocks it looked like most everything including elk was OTC I think elk was $500.50 thats right their with colorado but i don't think that there bull is OTC not sure anyways . what kind of mule deer and elk do you have compared to colorado ??
Sorry to the original thread starter not trying to hijack but this has got me fired up
Thanks a cow elk would be a trophy to me as long as it were 9-12 hundredRifle tags for bulls in this area are not OTC only spikes are OTC. The bulls in Northeast OR can get close to what they have in Colorado, but they are not as prevelant and the tags for those areas are very difficult to draw. Mule deer that are trophy quality I are lacking in OR. There are some but they few and far between. I can tell you the unit that most of those are in if you areinterested, just PM me I won't type it in open forum. Bear hunting in OR is awesome and the shot distances you are asking for are easily attainable if you are hunting canyons. For august and early september the difficulty is that they are hanging in the bottoms of those canyons and generally in brushy wooded areas (huckleberry patches right now).. NE Oregon is often overlooked for it's hunting but we have great animals here!
+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.to answer your question Tim Pickett in southern oregon is a great bear guide and I think the name of his outfit is north river out fitters.Google him and youll find him. As for the rest of Oregon hunting save your money and hunt elsewhere. Oregon is poorly managed for quality animals. I live here and hunt out of state for trophy quality.
