Some Oregon deer, elk hunters face reporting penalty

MEDFORD — Nearly 34,000 hunters face a $25 penalty for failing to tell the state of Oregon how they did on their 2012 deer and elk hunts.

The state wants better statistics on hunting success and harvest rates — which are used to set the numbers of deer and elk tags.

The Medford Mail Tribune reported that fewer than 40 percent of hunters reported results when there were no penalties or incentives were offered.

In October 2012, the state adopted the $25 penalty. The reporting rate skyrocketed to 85 percent, enough for sound data.

That still leaves a lot of hunters who face the penalty when they buy 2014 licenses at point-of-sale outlets or online.

Some other hunters also must report, but the penalty applies only on deer and elk tags.
