This two-part virtual course will provide new adult hunters with a broad overview of hunting in Oregon and more specifically the knowledge to get started on their big game hunting journey.
This ZOOM course is the online version of the in-person Intro to Big Game Hunting Seminar. We break up the course into two sections, taught in two back-to-back evenings. Participants must be available for both sections in order to register.
Topics covered include: Why do people hunt, what can people hunt in Oregon, when can they hunt the different species, and where can they hunt. Participants will learn about the different licenses and tags they need to hunt and when to put in for them. They will also be introduced to the topics of fair chase and ethics, gain knowledge on the types of weapons and other equipment needed for hunting, receive information on conservation funding and other resources to get them started on hunting big game.
The seminar will run from 6-7:30 p.m. both evenings.
Please be signed on 10 min before class so that we can start promptly.
Note taking material, as well as other handouts, and a link to access the course will be e-mailed to you prior to the seminar. Please print the handouts for you to have and use. Be aware that sometimes our communications end up in the junk-mail box so be sure to check that as well. The e-mail will go out a day or two before the seminar.
Also helpful to have would be a copy of the Oregon Big Game regulation book. These are available at stores such as Sportsman’s Warehouse, Cabelas, Bimart etc. If you cannot get ahold of a copy, electronic copies are available at http://www.eregulations.com/oregon/big-game-hunting/
