Apply for controlled hunt by May 15: Fall tag proposals online; Sports Pac winners announced
May 3, 2011


SALEM, Ore.—Tag proposals for controlled hunts for the 2011 hunting season are now online. Hunters now have less than two weeks to apply for one of these controlled hunts as the deadline is May 15 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

As of May 1, ODFW had processed 120,151 controlled hunt applications, compared to 119,421 by May 1, 2010. Last year, ODFW processed just over 375,000 controlled hunt applications total.

Hunters can apply for controlled hunts online, at a license sales agent, at ODFW offices that sell licenses, or by mail or fax order using the application found here or on page 17 of the 2011 Oregon Big Game Regulations.

2011 controlled hunt tag proposals

ODFW has posted online the information that will be available at a series of public meetings kicking off today, including controlled hunt tag proposals for fall 2011.

Most tag numbers are very similar to last year, thoughsome are down slightly. Winter conditions were more severe during the 2010-11 winter season. Over-winter survival for deer and elk herds was generally fair. Fawns and calves did enter the season with excellent body condition due to a wet summer and good forage conditions.

ODFW is proposing major reductions in antlerless deer tags in several NW Oregon units (Saddle Mtn, Scappoose, Wilson, Trask, Stott Mtn, Alsea, Siuslaw) because black-tailed deer populations are below desired levels.

Hunters are reminded that late season archery elk hunting will be controlled in several NW Oregon units (Santiam, Stott Mt, Alsea, McKenzie and N. Indigo) this fall, due to declining elk populations and to better distribute hunters.

Final Sports Pac winners announced

ODFW and the vendor that manages its license sales system gave away a 2012 Sports Pac ($164.75 value) or Non-Resident Hunting License ($140.50 value) to 100 hunters that applied for their 2011 fall big game controlled hunt early.

The 20 hunters chosen in the third and final drawing on April 16 were:

  • Randall E Haugen, Eugene
  • Jeffrey G Walters, Garibaldi
  • Jimmie J Winterbottom, Gresham
  • Caleb A Bowen, La Grande
  • David J Sofich, La Pine
  • Robert Jaynes La Pine
  • Troy A Tocher, Lebanon
  • Luke J Erickson, Medford
  • Jimmie S Hall, Mill City
  • Jeffrey J Timshel, Monmouth
  • Christopher R Hatfield, Neotsu
  • Michael Drahota, Oregon City
  • Wan Chao, Portland
  • Jonathan Bogle, Quincy, Wash.
  • Albin Rask, Rainier, Ore.
  • Sherry L Andrews, Roseburg
  • Kenneth M Taylor, Stayton
  • Keith G Edwards, Toledo
  • Gregg R Spaete, Troutdale
  • Lee Thao, Wilsonville

Some of Oregon’s big game hunts are limited entry, including almost all rifle hunting of deer and elk east of the Cascades and pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, and Rocky Mountain goat hunts. These hunts require a controlled hunt application.
