In buck deer hunts 141C, 142B, 154C, 165R, 168R2 and 170R3 and in certain controlled elk hunts, with a bag limit of one elk or one bull, in units where the usual bag limit for bull elk is spike only, LOP tags shall be limited to 5 tags or 10% of the total controlled hunt tags, whichever is greater. The affected hunts are: 226Y, 226R, 248A1, 249A1, 250X, 251A, 252A1, 253X, 254R1, 254Y1, 255R1, 255Y1, 256R1, 256Y1, 259Y, 261X, 262X, and 263X. All forms and applications must be received by May 15.

Properties that have had an increase or decrease in acreage it is required to submit a current property tax map(s) for each tax lot along with the 2013 Landowner Preference Registration form. Maps are available through ORMAP or your local county assessor’s website or office.

LOP tags with a bag limit of one elk or one bull in units where the usual bag limit for bull elk is spike only, remaining after the game mammal controlled hunt drawing will be issued to qualified landowners on a first-come, first-served basis. Tags issued in this manner are additional tags and a qualified landowner may purchase only one first-come, first-served tag per hunt series. Such a tag may be for the landowner or for someone other than the landowner listed on their tag distribution form. A hunter receiving a tag through the original game mammal controlled hunt drawing process may exchange that tag for a remaining tag in the first-come, first served process while tags remain available. Tag purchases and exchanges may be obtained only through ODFW Salem Headquarters and must be made before the earliest opening start date for which the tags are issued. The tag being exchanged shall not be reissued.

All controlled deer and elk hunts occurring on a landowner’s registered property are eligible for landowner preference program. Pronghorn hunts with an either-sex or a one doe or fawn bag limit occurring on a landowner’s registered property are also eligible. If an applicant is successful in receiving a pronghorn tag for a hunt with an either-sex bag limit, the LOP tag is automatically issued with a bag limit of one doe or fawn.

The number of tags allowed per hunt series is based on registered landowner acreage:

Tags Minimum Acreage Hunt Type
2 40 Contiguous All hunts, except pronghorn antelope, eastern Oregon buck or either-sex deer, and eastern Oregon bull and either-sex hunts. (Must be contiguous/connected acreage.)
2 160 Contiguous All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
3 1,200 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
4 2,500 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
5 5,000 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
6 10,000 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
8 20,000 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
10 40,000 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
12 80,000 All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)
14 160,000 or greater All Hunts (see current Big Game Regulations for more info)

All landowners must submit tag distribution forms by specific deadlines above to be eligible for LOP tags.

If the hunt begins prior to Sept. 15, controlled hunt applications, registration forms, and tag distribution forms must be received before the earliest opening date.

For hunts with more than one hunt period, the tag purchases deadline is the day before the earliest opening date.

Must be minimum of 160 contiguous/connected acres for Pronghorn Antelope hunts (with only "doe/fawn" or "either sex" hunts are eligible), eastern Oregon buck or either-sex deer and eastern Oregon bull and either-sex elk hunts.

In 2003, the Oregon Legislature approved a four-year pilot LOP program for southwest Oregon to address elk damage in Jackson, Josephine, Coos, Curry, and Douglas counties. The 2007 Legislature extended the pilot program through June 2014. To obtain information on the SW Oregon LOP regulations contact the ODFW SW Region Office at: (541) 440-3353.
