    late season white river unit

    Has anyone here ever hunted the whiteriver late gun hunt . I have been trying to find out info. on the hunt to see if its worth burning my points on. It dont matter to me that they are black/mulely crosses. Just as long as there is some big ones. I have 16 points now ,but it still maybe a few years to draw , not sure if this is the year they give the n.r. tags to the outfitters, any info would greatly help. thank you.

    I burned 16 points in 2009 for the tag. It is an awesome hunt. I tell everyone to apply for it. It is the best deer hunt in Oregon….period. The bucks have very little mule deer in them, if any, and look like blacktails, and I have dozens of blacktails on our ranch.

    When I burned my points was in the max point pool and could draw any tag in the state. Basically the choice came down to a mediocre mule deer hunt (the best Oregon has to offer) or the best blacktail hunt I would ever go on. The choice was pretty easy.

    Study the point summaries carefully so you know where you stand. I don't know about this hunt specifically, but it wouldn't take many people ahead of you to put you a couple decades away from drawing.

    Good point QQ!

    Here is a good tool put together by a fellow from Oregon that distills draw odds.

    Its all good, I knew oregon wasnt on top of the list on big trophys, but a great state to just go hunt and have a great time.. I drew a oregon sheep tag a few years back , so what ever the state has to offer is fine with me. This many points gives me a option to split my points with someone or just keep trying for a good hunt exp.

    Black tail is on my bucket list for sure. But man that's a lot of points.

    If you ever decide to split points I may have a suggestion that could interest you. Send me a PM if you like.
