How to apply for a controlled hunt

Unlike general season hunts where anyone can buy a tag over-the-counter, controlled hunts are limited entry hunts that require you to apply in advance for the opportunity to draw a tag in a random computerized drawing. Much of Oregon’s rifle deer and elk hunting is limited entry—along with all antelope, sheep and goat hunting, and some game birds.

The deadline to apply for a big game controlled hunt remains May 15.
