ODFW Holds Meetings To Discuss Proposed Hunting Changes | Outside

SALEM – Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) staff to present proposed changes to the 2022 hunting seasons and answer questions from hunters, at a series of local office meetings scheduled for July agencies across the state.

The only major potential change for the 2022 big game seasons being considered is the elk archery seasons. A controlled hunt is being considered for some units in the Blue Mountains where there are lingering concerns about low post-season bull ratios, high archery harvest and hunter density, according to a press release from ODFW.

A more detailed proposal is expected to be available at local meetings and the Fish and Wildlife Commission is expected to make a decision regarding the 2022 archery elk hunt at its August 6 meeting.
