Youth can apply for guided turkey hunt on Jackson County ranch – Deadline is March 28

March 7, 2012

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — ODFW is offering youth hunters (ages 17 and under) the opportunity to win a guided turkey hunt on a private ranch in Jackson County during the spring 2014 season.

Ten hunts will be raffled on March 31, 2014. Winners will receive one day of turkey hunting on the C2 Ranch, accompanied by a guide who will help locate wild turkeys. A parent or other family member may also accompany the youth on the hunt.

Spring turkey season runs April 15-May 31 statewide, and youth hunters get their own two-day season April 12-13. Winners will need to contact C2 Ranch to arrange a hunt day sometime during the season.

“The ranch has a lot of oak savannah and brushy areas, which makes for good wild turkey habitat,” says ODFW wildlife biologist Vince Oredson.

Raffle applications are available at the ODFW Central Point office, 1495 East Gregory Rd., or online at

Applications must be received at the Central Point ODFW office by 5 pm, March 28, and may be submitted by mail, in person, or email. There is no cost to enter the raffle. Winners will be notified on March 31.

Youth without hunter education certification may apply and hunt under the Mentored Youth Hunter program, but only during the regular spring turkey season (April 15-May 31), not the two-day youth season.

For more information on the raffle hunt contact Vince Oredson at (541) 826-8774.

The hunts are made possible by a $24,000 Access and Habitat Program grant awarded to the C2 Ranch to conduct habitat improvements for big game and other wildlife species. In return, the ranch owners provided 28 guided youth deer hunts and six adult archery deer hunts last fall, as well as the ten youth turkey hunts offered in spring.

The A and H Program funds projects that provide hunter access and/or improve wildlife habitat on private land in Oregon. The A and H Program is funded primarily by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses and revenue from the sale of big game auction tags and raffle tickets.
