Fire season brings closures – check before you go hunting

Wet weather could relax fire restrictions and closures but hunters should check the “corporate closures” list on the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Internet site regularly to learn the access status of large private timberlands. For private and non-federal public forestlands, call the Oregon Department of Forestry field office nearest your destination. Office phone numbers

Hunters: Return black-tailed deer teeth

ODFW asks that successful Western Oregon deer hunters return blacktailed deer teeth for population modeling. See this flyer (pdf) for tips on how to remove. Include following information with tooth: hunter name, address, date of kill, species killed, sex of animal, and wildlife management unit or hunt where harvested. Mail to: ODFW Wildlife Population Lab, 7118 NE Vandenberg Ave, Adair Village, OR 97330. Pre-paid, pre-addressed envelopes for teeth are available at ODFW offices and many license sales agents. Hunters that submit teeth will receive a postcard with information about their animal after about nine months.

Game bird seasons are on

Forest grouse, quail, mourning dove and September Canada goose are all good early season opportunities. Band-tailed pigeon season runs Sept. 15-23.
