Game Bird Hunting


Oregon's diverse landscapes support diverse populations of both upland birds and waterfowl. Name a habitat type and chances are there is a game bird (or two) to be found there: coastal estuaries -- brant; rocky river canyons -- chukar partridge; marshes of  eastern Oregon -- gadwall; forested slopes of the Cascades -- ruffed grouse; wooded streams of western Oregon -- wood duck; grasslands and agricultural fields -- ringnecked pheasant. And practically everywhere -- mallard and Canada goose.
