2017 Oregon Big Game Hunting

Plus a few other western states

This was taken at 8 yards on Father’s Day. I had seen the buck deep in the canyon and figured his avenue he was going and laid in wait for him…

The deadline for applying for Oregon a Big Game tags is coming near with May 15th, it is  just around the corner. By now most should know where to put in for.  Stats are out on the ODFW website.  

If you need help, contact me via the email at the end of this page. It is now time to get dialed in for 2017 in Oregon and many other Western States.   I do believe that 2017 is going to be a great year for hunters.  

Ammo is lower in price and if we can get the Predators down, then we can have some survival of game going into 2017 hunting seasons.  Those that are willing to get out in the winter months, there is a great deal of predator hunting that can be done.

Scott with an Oregon Pronghorn that he waited on the waterhole for more than 8 hours. Scott had a secret spot and has taken a number of Lopes with the bow & arrow.

On the Oregon Antelope-Pronghorn Hunters (Facebook), there was a statement that a hunter drew a Hart Mtn Lope Tag last year and used something like 25 points.  He drew again this year Go Figure!

Oregon is a great state to get a Pope & Young Pronghorn, so if you are bowhunter give me a jingle or email!  Got lots of spots for bow hunters for sure!  Why wait 12-25 years to get a rifle tag, though sometime we all like to pull the trigger on a Booner Lope!

I do believe he a keeper! High Cutters, so extra measurement! Shoot!

The deal has been I expect a short story and pictures, the information is FREE.    A 2015 Pronghorn hunter, asked for help to harvest a big Dinosaur in a limited area, not computer or GPS savvy, wanted a guide, whatever it took.  I got one of my group hunters (David was a 2010 Lope hunter in the area and Mike was 2011 hunter in the area) (my first Booner came from this spot) to overnight current maps and direction to spots with water from a May 2015 scouting.   All the details.  His picture was one with little to show and a 1 line comment, I shot the monster at 300 yards.  I would have expected more for all the effort put into getting him in on a big Lope…   Hell never got the official score either…

My suggestion is that you need a Garmin that has color screen, a slot for Micro SD Card and the mapping software from onXmaps HUNT out of Montana.  I can be contacted via the following email addresses for any questions you might have for on first interview. Free. Intro of me: I am home base out of Oregon –

This is a buck from the S. Wagontire Unit in Oregon. The tag holder was from California and one of five to get drawn for the unit. Old stomping grounds for me.

This was the first bull with about 50 cows. Picture was taken in August. Amazing getting this shot of him bugling. Only time he did. Not other bulls in the area at all. Strange timing.

The picture was taken 6-28-14 at 2030 Hour outside of Molalla, Oregon very close to Hwy 213. A dandy Blacktail buck that was running with another buck that was bigger. Just so fast on the camera and juggling around trees.

One should have seen the one that went into the draw, when I saw this bruiser coming out of the draw at 800 yards, I only had the side profile and saw mass. The rest is history!

This was suppose to be my target Blacktail this year. Did not get permission to hunt the property - 2015
