Hunters can find plenty of coyotes locally


Hunting Report...


COYOTE:  Good numbers of coyotes can be found throughout Wallowa County. Calling coyotes with rabbit distress-type calls has been effective for hunters. It is important to choose areas with abundant coyote sign and little human activity. 

COUGAR:  Cougar numbers are strong throughout Wallowa County.  Most lions are taken incidental to other hunting.

However, calling with fawn bleat, or locating a cougar kill and waiting for a cat to return are often successful techniques.


COUGARS are common in Union county. Setting up downwind of a deer or elk killed by a cougar can be productive. A cougar kill is often covered with material that has been scraped up in about a 10-foot-diameter circle around the carcass. 

Cougars will often drag their kill to the nearest cover next to the kill site. Pay attention to drag marks. Be extremely patient and wear camo when calling cougars as they come in slowly and use every bit of cover as they approach.

Using remote calls and motion devices will focus the cat’s attention away from a blind.

COYOTE: Coyote numbers are good throughout the district. Try calling in early morning and late afternoon. Pup in distress as well as prey in distress sounds can be productive. Remember to ask for permission before hunting on private properties.



Bird hunting seasons are now closed.

New this year, a parking permit is needed for Ladd Marsh. 

Hunters get the permit free with their purchase of an annual hunting license. Display the permit on the car dash.

All lands west of Foothill Road on Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area will also be closed to entry through March 31 to protect wintering elk.
