Fall trout stocking underway
If you thought trout season was over, think again. Over 25 waterbodies throughout the state will be stocked in October and November, making for some fine fall fishing. Check the zone reports or the trout stocking schedule for the names and the numbers.

Learn to duck hunt
The ODFW adult waterfowl hunting workshop combines classroom training with hands-on activities, all while going on an actual hunt. You’ll walk away from the workshop with the skills and knowledge you need to successfully enter the field and hunt on their own.

Workshops are Dec. 1 and 2 – choose one – in Cornelius. To participate, you must also complete a Shotgun skills clinic on Nov. 17 or 18. Learn more and to register.

Take a friend hunting – Chance win a statewide deer tag or other great prizes
Take someone who is new to the sport out hunting—or even someone who hasn’t hunted in awhile! Then enter to win some great prizes including the grand prize of a statewide deer tag for 2020. Learn all the details.
