Report big game and turkey tags

Don’t forget to report your hunt results no later than Jan. 31, 2015 for most hunts. Report online or by phone (1-866-947-6339).

Hunters need to complete a report for each deer, elk, cougar, bear, turkey and pronghorn tag purchased (or picked up as part of a Sports Pac)—even if they didn’t hunt or weren’t successful. Deer and elk hunters who don’t report will have to pay a $25 fine to get a 2016 hunting license.

Winter steelhead season underway

Winter steelhead and winter rains have arrived together. For the best fishing, keep an eye on the weather and water levels (and the weekly Recreation Report) and be ready to hit the river when water levels start to fall. To help plan your trip, including access and fishing tips, check out the 2014 Annual Fishing Guide.

Spring bear hunting applications due Feb. 10

Spring bear hunters who purchase a SW Oregon tag are not eligible to purchase other controlled spring bear tags or get a point saver. See regulations for details.

Waterfowl seasons end Jan. 25

Duck seasons and many goose seasons close on Jan. 25, see the regulations for details.
