Hunting Report for May 25, 2012 / ODFW

Bear hunters glassing ‘spring green-up’ areas

UNION COUNTY

OPEN: COUGAR, SPRING BEAR (controlled season), SPRING TURKEY

SPRING BEAR: Controlled spring bear season is now open. Successful hunters commonly find bears by glassing new “spring green-up” areas below snowline. Bear numbers and hunter access should increase throughout the season, translating to hunter success. Remember, it is now mandatory to check in any harvested bear within 10 days of harvest.

TURKEY: Spring turkey season is now open. Many birds will be found in lower elevations on both public and private lands. Locating birds in their roost before daylight will greatly increase success.

Setting up near a known roost with a decoy and call can bring in that wary tom. Turkeys rely on their sight for survival, making camouflage and as little movement as possible essential to hunter success. Remember, always ask first to hunt on private land.

 

WALLOWA COUNTY

TURKEY: Good numbers of birds are available throughout the district. Access has improved in all units.

BLACK BEAR: Spring bear activity continues to improve with warmer temperatures.  Hunter access remains difficult at higher elevations in the Minam and Snake River units, but is much improved in other units.  Hunters should focus their efforts in canyon areas below snow line that have good green grass growth.

LADD MARSH

Bird hunting seasons are now closed. A parking permit is needed for Ladd Marsh.
