Oregonians love their hunting season. You don’t have to drive far from Portland, Bend, Medford or any other of the state’s great cities to enjoy a wide range of hunts. As hunters prepare their gear, whether it’s to go bow hunting for elk or pheasant hunting, remember to follow the law and purchase your hunting tags.
Controlled hunting tags limit the number of hunters for particular hunts and areas to improve game management and enhance the hunting experience. Controlled hunting tags are purchased through a state’s game and wildlife department. The deadline to purchase any controlled hunt tag is the day before the earliest hunt opens.
