Game Bird Hunting

Game bird hunting includes upland birds, waterfowl and turkey, and is some of the most accessible hunting in Oregon. Equipment requirements for upland bird hunting are minimal – a shotgun and a good pair of boots will get you started – and liberal seasons mean there’s an upland season open somewhere in the state from Sept. 1 to Jan 31. Oregon also boasts diverse waterfowl species from sea ducks in coastal stillwaters, to puddle ducks in the alkali basins of southeast Oregon, to widespread goose populations.
