Roadkill Salvage Permits

January 2, 2019

Beginning on January 1, 2019, salvaging deer and elk struck by vehicles is legal in Oregon.

Due to COVID-19 related ODFW office closures, rules requiring that people check in roadkill parts within 5 business days have been waived with the exception of heads with antlers from male deer and male elk. (The requirement to surrender heads with antlers is in statute and cannot be waived by ODFW.) Roadkill permittees must call a local office to arrange surrendering antlers. Please call your local office within 5 days of salvaging roadkill to make arrangements (though the actual surrender may occur after 5 days).
