SALEM, Ore.—Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a series of public meetings around the state to accept public comment on proposals for big game hunting seasons.

At the meetings, ODFW staff will provide information about herd health and populations, propose the number of controlled big game hunting tags to issue for this year and review concepts for 2009 big game regulations.

Oregon offers both general seasons and controlled hunts for big game (deer, elk, pronghorn, bighorn sheep, Rocky Mtn goat, cougar, and black bear). The number of tags for controlled hunts is limited and hunters must apply for them by May 15 each year. Staff proposals for tag numbers will be available at the meetings and posted on ODFW’s website later this month.

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider staff recommendations and adopt final 2008 tag numbers and 2009 big game regulation concepts at its June 6 meeting in Salem.

Interested individuals may also provide input on ODFW proposals during public testimony at the June 6 Commission meeting in Salem. Written comments can be sent to ODFW Wildlife Division, 3406 Cherry Ave NE, Salem, OR 97303 or e-mailed to odfw.comments@state.or.us
