Big Game Hunting

Oregon offers diverse deer hunting opportunities among beautiful landscapes, with both over-the-counter general tags and controlled tags available. Western Oregon’s reclusive black-tails live in the lush habitat of the coastal mountains and western Cascades. Eastern Oregon’s mule deer live in the more open country of the High Desert and the northeast. Oregon also boasts a growing white-tail population and opportunity to hunt them in controlled hunts in the southwest and northeast portions of the state.
