Oregon East Side Archery Deer

Postby Swede » 01 16, 2021 •  [Post 1]

Just a note to inform those that may not already know: All archery deer hunting on the east side of Oregon has gone to a draw this year. We will not be able to wait until August to purchase an over the counter tag any more. We will not be able to hunt different east side units, all in the same season, like we could in the past. I have heard that elk tags will go the same way next year.
I do not know what will be available as a 2nd choice unit, but we may have to burn all of our points to hunt the unit we hunted OTC in the past.
On the positive side for dedicated bow hunters; those that prefer to hunt with a rifle will have to decide if they are archery hunting before the draw, or they could be left out. Maybe they can pick up an archery tag as a second choice. I suppose it will take a couple of years to sort this all out.
