ODFW Recreation Report Highlights - Hunting


Give us a wing and a tail - Map of collection barrels for grouse and quail now available
If you bag a bird, don’t forget to give us a wing and a tail for any forest grouse or mountain quail you harvest! Use paper bags in the bright blue collection barrels placed at major road junctions or highways in hunting areas and at some ODFW offices and popular rural markets. Mark your harvest date plus county and general location where you hunted.

Here are maps of collection barrels in the NWSWColumbia, and NE areas.

Hunter orange isn’t just for hunters
There are lots of reasons to take to the hills this fall – fishing a hike-in lake, wildlife watching while on a hike, or scrambling in the woods looking for mushrooms. If you’re in the woods during hunting season, it’s a good idea to stand out from your surroundings. Wear a brightly colored hat, vest or coat. This time of year, (hunter) orange can be the new black.

Know before you go – Check fire restrictions, closures before heading outdoors

Take a friend hunting – Chance win a statewide deer tag or other great prizes
