    Does it count for points if I put in first choice for deer and elk? I just didn't plan on drawing because I put in for the impossible thinking I would just build points. Or do I have it wrong? The Oregon law book is like Nothing I have ever seen before. I think I may be getting gray hair just trying to figure it out. HaHa! Thanks, Carl

    Carl, that is the best way to do it and still have a crack at an awesome tag.

    On your second choice, you can apply for a hunt you will draw and not lose your points if you draw your second choice. For that to work, you have to find hunts that have less first choice applicants than tags available. You can easily see that if you look at the hunt choice in the reg book where it shows number of tags, and number of applicants last year.

    Then...even if you do draw your second choice, you still don't have to buy that tag, you can still buy a tag for the general hunts.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)

Next year we are going to Wyoming for antelope. My Dad and I have a ten year plan for hunting. We are trying to have a decent hunt every year for the next ten years. Dads getting close to sixty, but he is still in good shape. Just trying to get as much quality time as posible. Then when Dad starts slowing down my kids will be old enough and they will pick up were he left off.


    I also plan on getting a sheep tag as well!!!!
    Good luck on the draw! You and I have alot in common when it come to applying for the deer season.

I am overwhelmed with all the scouting that I'm trying to do since I moved here with no knowledge of Oregon. I just did my first 8k trail run in corvallis today. Oregon ben good to me so far, even caught some wild steelhead.
    Carl, if you have trouble getting into elk shoot me a p.m. I would be happy to help you find em. There are a few between where you and I live, I just may know where....

    I will and have been hunting Oregon this year.

    One tag filled so far...


    Just got home from NEO where I was scouting for my Mt Goat since I have a good feeling about that draw. Well, actually my wife was in an art show and I was along for the ride and looking at Mt Goats but should I draw it will be high on my list.

    Archery elk for sure!

    Deer I cant decide yet between archery or blacktail rifle season.

    Fall bear will get a solid effort.

    Extra deer tag for sure!

    We put in for Silvies elk and Malheur river deer with 0 points. We could possibly get elk tags for 3 years running because my niece has a couple banked points to bring our average up and I have good Karma. I am hunting Idaho elk and Deer in November. I suckered my brother into going with me on another "do yourself in" hunt as Bitterroot calls it. If I don't draw OR controlled elk, I will likely do a OTC first season tag to get some tent time before we go to ID. I may have to actually hunt the blacktails around my house, but I refuse to hunt when it is raining or windy. What a go getter I am!!

    I will be hunting some nice trout(and letting them go of course) in a number of places to help my brain find it's happy place.
