Oregon Big Game Hunting 2020
It’s that time of the year to start considering your options for the upcoming big game fall hunts in Oregon. May 15th is the application deadline and I don’t know about you, but it always sneaks up on me! There are a few changes this year to make note of. In my opinion, here are the most important ones:
- In Eastern Oregon, there appears to no longer be general Rocky Mountain elk seasons.
- New General Antlerless Elk Damage Season on private land in chronic agriculture damaged areas.
- Hunts previously listed as “Centerfire” are now listed as “Any Legal Weapon” to ensure hunters are aware that any legal rifle, shotgun, bow, muzzleloader, or handgun is allowed.
- Leftover Tags are no longer available as an additional tag.
With new changes to ALL big game hunting opportunities, now is the best time to own your own hunting ground. Land Owner Preference tags are a great option to increase your odds of meeting your hunting aspirations and expectations. We have some excellent offerings in some of Oregon’s best big game hunting units including the Grizzly Unit, Ochoco Unit, and Fossil Unit, to name a few.

Ask your way to the top if the answers you are receiving do not seem right and if they don’t make sense, ask to talk with a supervisor. Every year that goes by is one less hunting year we have left, make the most of the season in front of you. Happy Hunting!
