We’ve asked our biologists what the upcoming bird seasons look like in their areas, and compiled their reports into the 2018-19 game bird hunting forecast. Grouse is up in the west, pheasant is up in the east and ducks are pretty stable everywhere. Mourning dove, grouse and some quail open Sept. 1. Want more details? Read the forecast.
We’ve compiled reports from around the state for deer, elk, bear and cougar. If you’ve got your sights set on a mule deer in northeast Oregon or a bull elk in the Cascades, you’ll get the latest on over-winter survival and current habitat conditions. P.S. Don’t forget to buy your tag before the hunt begins.
