Big game raffle and auction hunts

All funds raised by deer and elk auction and raffle tags go directly to the Access and Habitat Program. Funds raised by bighorn sheep, pronghorn, and Rocky Mountain goat auction and raffle tags go directly to the management of those species.

Big game raffles

Since 1995, the A&H program has raffled off exclusive tags, offering hunters additional opportunity to their controlled and general season tags. All tags allow for hunting with any legal weapon, have extended season dates of August 1 – November 30, and are in addition to controlled and general season tags. Raffle rules and drawing order can be found here, in the Oregon Big Game Hunting Regulations.

Big Game auction hunts

The Big Game auction hunts are another great way for hunters to get additional tags. Each year, the auction events bring in money that directly funds big game management and research, and habitat and hunter access projects. Each tag allows for hunting with any legal weapon, and extended season dates.
