Hunters that applied for a 2012 fall controlled hunt can find out if they drew the tag online at ODFW’s Hunting Resources page.
Hunters will need to enter their Hunter/Angler ID#, last name, date of birth, and then click My Hunter Information and Draw Results.
A postcard with results will also be mailed this week to all hunters that applied for a controlled hunt.
ODFW and license sales agents processed 373,227 controlled hunt applications this year (including 2012 spring bear hunts) compared to just over 380,000 applications last year. A total of 139,710 controlled hunt tags were available (including 8,395 2013 spring bear tags that will be drawn next year).
Hunters need to purchase their tags no later than the day before the earliest hunt period begins. Sports Pac license holders also must pick up their correct tag no later than the day before the earliest hunt period begins.
Some of Oregon’s big game hunts are limited entry, including almost all rifle hunting of deer and elk east of the Cascades and pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, and Rocky Mountain goat hunts. These hunts require a controlled hunt application.
