Proposed cougar target area for Douglas County discussed at public meeting.

May 4, 2015

ROSEBURG, Ore – Increasing spring turkey tags, creating a “cougar target area” in Douglas County, and mandatory reporting are just a few topics to be discussed at the annual hunting regulations meeting tomorrow, May 5 at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, 4192 N. Umpqua Hwy., Roseburg. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.

“We have some important proposals on the table that hunters and others interested should be aware of. We are looking for input,” said Tod Lum, District Wildlife Biologist.

Topics include:

  • Black-tailed deer research study information.
  • “Premium Hunt” concept – new controlled hunts series for deer, elk, and pronghorn.
  • Cougar target area to address livestock damage in Douglas County.
  • New upland game regulations.
  • Mandatory reporting.
  • General season harvest limits and date.
Hunting regulations are updated yearly. Biologists take public input at meetings held around the state and present proposed changes to the Fish and Wildlife Commission at their August meeting. Changes are typically implemented the following year.
