I'd definitely wait on the Trout Creeks for at least a couple years. He can draw a archery tag in the trouts last choice (unlimited) and still get another pt., if he wants to check it out first!
    One thing to clarify on that is the archery hunt in Trout Creek is "traditional" archery (recurve or long bow).

    Thanks for the information everyone. I'll be sure to pass it on.
    I asked about the Hells Canyon area because I've seen some very nice bucks come out of the Idaho side and wasn't sure how the Oregon side held up.

    Also, I was looking at the map for Trout Creek and it says that some of the area is a BLM wilderness study area, what does that mean?


    Thanks again,

    I can assure you the Oregon side is not like the Idaho side as far as deer and elk go.

    Yet again, I completely agree with Timberstalker on the Snake....good bear, sheep, goat and elk but I wouldn't waste my time on deer in the Snake in Oregon!

    You will find BLM Wilderness Study area signs all over the desert and I think there are 5 within the Trout Creeks. Within the study areas you can ride a bicycle or an "off-road vehicle" only on designated routes which are primarily the main roads. Most spur roads are signed. All cross country travel is not allowed except walking or horses. I'm not sure about game carts. It could present a huge problem for packing out an animal.

    I think Trout Creek was the place to go 20 years ago but I don't believe it's that anymore. If I had the points your friend had hands down I would apply for the Nov. Mt. Emily hunt. I grew up in the NE corner of the state and still hunt there annually for something, I can't think of any unit I'd burn that many points on a Muley for in that part of Oregon. Just my opinion though.

    I think Id do the Juniper muzzleloader hunt as my first choice for a true monster buck. Second choice would be to do the Metolius Bow hunt.

    First post on here, actually I was digging for dirt on WY draw results, and I like the feel of this board!

    A question for the other OR folks who mentioned the White River Late Blacktail hunt.
    How many points would it take to have a real chance at that draw?
    I know I can look it up but I'm concentrating the out-of-state deadlines first. (of course if Wyoming comes through then it's all over but the sheep & goat lottery at home)
    I have 9 pts this year...... been putting in for White Horse but not hearing good things on that unit (not that points are good enough anyways).
    Thanks

    Hi OregonJim…I'm a Jim from Oregon too.

    I don't know if you are familiar with the Oregon Tag Draw Percentage website. This is done by the same guy who published the Oregon tag draw books that are often seen in sporting goods here in Oregon. Here is the link:

    https://sites.google.com/site/oregon...ries-buck-deer

    With 9 preference points he is estimating 20+ years to draw the White River Late hunt. I had the tag in 2009, but not sure if I'd wait almost 30 years in total for the tag.

    Thanks Umpqua (Jim):
    Now thats ironic, I'm Jim and I work at the mouth of the Umpqua!!!!

    Yes I couldn't stand it and I looked up the points.
    I was extremely fortunate to take a great BT up in Washington about 15 years ago which I will never top.... so you are right, I will not sit on those points that long.
    Congrats on your kids White Tail.... how cool is that.
