Big Game Hunting

Northeast Area

This vast area covers the Columbia Basin through the Blue, Wallowa and Elkhorn mountains to Hells Canyon. Some of Oregon's most prized big game hunts are managed in this area.

The Columbia Basin can offer some good deer, elk and antelope numbers, but finding public access can be challenging. The rest of the area has vast tracts of national forest lands, BLM lands, state wildlife areas and Travel Management Areas, which open industrial timberland to hunters.
