    Drew Minam unit tags again this year for muleys, so will be hunting amongst the buffalo again. Got in on them a couple of times last year and shot this video. Amazing experience. Also got some great close up footage of a really nice black bear, sadly on private land, but nevertheless a nice find

    Aren't those buffalo fair game to hunt?
    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    Sadly not - I already inquired They were originally a small head of 50 owned and on private land, fenced in. Not an easy animal to keep fenced in and they, needless to say, escaped and roamed the Eagle Caps public land freely for a long time. I heard recently on the news that ODFW plan to round them up, but I'm not sure who's planning on paying for buffalo-proof fencing. In the meantime if you plan on hunting the Eagle Caps, plan on seeing these guys, or expect a heart-racing moment as we did when you unexpectedly run in to them!

    I think they are fair game if they are on public land. They are not considered wildlife so in my mind they fall in the same category as feral swine. Shoot em!

    I agree, mostly becasue I like buffalo meat. That would be awsome to hike off the hill with a big azz buffalo head on your back.

    I'd love to agree with you and walk off with an overloaded freezer, but that's not what the locals and the local law enforcement are saying, so steady. Someone did shoot one once, and left the scene. There was a huge uproar. Don't think they got caught but if they had they would have apparently been prosecuted. I guess you have to have a tag

    That is probably good advice even though it goes against what I think is right. If anybody should be getting a ticket it is the dipstick that turned the things loose or can't keep them contained.

    Agreed, we deal with two neighboring 'ranchers' cattle who regularly get on our property and destroy my Dad's garden and our wildlife food plots. We're talking 400 acres of prime whitetail habitat my Dad purchased solely for deer hunting. These cattle roam through, upsetting our hunting, and the 'ranchers' are completely unapologetic. We have been more than friendly, even electric-fencing our soybean plot, just to keep cattle out to maintain the peace. Pretty soon, my patience will wear thin, and an arrow may be launched.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    Well just got back from another successful hunt of the Minam Unit where I killed a 4pt muley. Also, most of the buffalo have now be round up and fenced back in on private land. However, we did come cross this rogue large male hiding behind some bushes about 20 ft from us when we were out on the quad. About scared the pants off me lol.Click image for larger version.
