The lush northwest corner of Oregon offers world class bird hunting -- from waterfowl hunting on the lower Columbia River to ruffed grouse flushing in the foothills of the Cascades. Opportunities abound close to Oregon's major metropolitan areas.
Several species of birds can be hunted from the crest of the Cascades west to the coast and from the Columbia River to the southern reaches of the Willamette valley. The Coast and Cascade ranges are rugged, densely forested, steep hills; much of this timberland is actively harvested. Millions of acres of public and private land can be accessed through national and state forests, plus private timberland is open to hunters. The Willamette Valley is mostly private, agricultural land.
