Since many game birds in Oregon reside on private land, finding a place to hunt can be challenging. The Hunt by Reservation Program brings hunters and landowners together to provide quality hunting experiences.
ODFW’s Hunt by Reservation Program facilitates public hunting opportunities on small and mid-sized private properties. Typically, it can be hard to find a hunting spot on private land if you don’t already know a landowner. Likewise, it can be a hassle for landowners to manage hunter access. We’ve created an online reservation system that makes hunting access easier for both hunters and landowners.
Most properties are in the Willamette Valley near urban centers. We will continue to recruit landowners to the program and hope to expand to other regions in the state, so check back throughout the season for updates.
This program relies on trust. If we receive a landowner report about disrespect, failure to follow program or property rules, or wildlife law violations, we will exclude you from the program in the future. One strike and you’re out.
Remember, life happens. There could be times when a landowner cannot allow hunting on a scheduled date because of issues with family, livestock, unplanned trips and so on. If a landowner cannot accommodate your reservation, please be understanding and contact us to try and reschedule.
