SALEM, Ore.—The second meeting of a new Archery Review Public Advisory Committee (ARPAC) will be Saturday, Feb. 15 at ODFW Headquarters in Salem (4034 Fairview Industrial Drive SE) from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
The group was convened to review the structure of archery deer and elk hunts across the state. During the meeting on Feb. 15, ARPAC is expected to discuss antlerless harvest and tag structure (in particular, hunts where archery tags for deer and elk are tied together).
ARPAC members include representatives from ODFW, Oregon State Police, Traditional Archers of Oregon, Oregon Hunters Association, Oregon Bowhunters Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Mule Deer Foundation, Professional Bowhunters Society and several non-affiliated, “at-large” bowhunters from around the state.
Members of the public are also welcome to attend the meeting but will be asked to hold their comments until a designated time for public comment during the meeting (4 p.m.). Comments can also be sent to ODFW.Comments@state.or.us.
ARPAC is expected to meet again on March 8, also in Salem at ODFW Headquarters. By late spring, ARPAC may bring forth recommendations for changing current archery seasons. Any changes would go through a public process before the Fish and Wildlife Commission and not occur before the 2015 season.
In recent years, more than 31,500 bowhunters have pursued deer and more than 28,000 bowhunters have pursued elk annually in Oregon.
