ODFW: Public Meetings On Big Game, More

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a series of public meetings throughout Oregon in early May to hear public comments on proposals for big game, game bird, and furbearer hunting and trapping seasons. There will be a meeting at the North Bend Library on May 7th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

ODFW staff will provide information about big game herd health and populations and propose the number of controlled big game hunting tags to issue for this year. Staff will also review concepts for possible changes to the 2015 big game regulations, including any changes to archery seasons recommended by the Archery Review Public Advisory Committee.
Staff proposals for tag numbers, ARPAC recommendations and other proposed 2015 regulations changes will be available at the meetings and posted on the hunting section of ODFW’s website by May 1st. Upland bird seasons and furbearer regulations are additional topics open for discussion and comment during these meetings. Upland game bird seasons are reviewed every five years and seasons structures are due for review this year.
