Spring bear hunt applications due Feb. 10

Feb. 1, 2012

SALEM, Ore.—Applications for controlled spring bear hunting are due by Feb. 10, 2012.

Hunters may apply online, at a license sales agent or ODFW office that sells licenses, or by mail or fax order using this application (also found on page 17 of the 2012 Oregon Big Game Regulations). Mail orders must be postmarked no later than Feb. 10 and faxes must be received at ODFW (fax 503-947-6117 or 6113) by 11:59 p.m. PT on Feb. 10.

New for this year, the start dates for White River Unit and Hood Unit hunts have been moved up to April 1 (from April 15). Units 45 (Fossil) and 48 (Heppner) have shifted from the W Blue Mts hunt to the S Blue Mts hunt.

There are 4,000 first-come, first-serve SW Oregon spring bear tags available for the SW Oregon hunt. As of Jan. 30, 2012, 2,821 of these tags have been sold. SW Oregon spring bear tags sold out on Feb. 14 in 2011 and Feb. 20 in 2010. Hunters that apply for a controlled spring bear hunt may not purchase a SW Oregon tag until after the draw on Feb. 20.

Last year, 488 bears were taken by hunters during the spring season. See spring bear hunting statistics for more information.
