Viewing Report for November 9, 2012

Love is in the air: A Wallowa County mule deer sifts the air for the telltale scent of a doe in estrous. Mid-November is perhaps the best time to catch bucks coming out of their hiding places looking for females. Unlike bull elk, who usually gather a harem of cows, buck deer tend to move around looking for receptive does — one or two at a time. At this time, finding a small group of does is a good bet for finding a buck. JIM WARD photo

UNION COUNTY

Ladd Marsh
Wildlife Area

Note: Wildlife viewers and anglers need a parking permit to park on the wildlife area. The $7 daily or $22 annual permit can be purchased online or at an ODFW office that sells licenses or at a license sales agent.

Tule Lake Public Access Area and the Auto Route are closed for the season. Tule Lake Public Access Area will be open to foot traffic only Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and
holidays during the pheasant and waterfowl seasons.

The Glass Hill Unit is open to public access for foot traffic only. Visitors are advised to carefully read posted signs and consult game bird regulations before entering the wildlife area. 

Dogs are not permitted within the wildlife area, on or off leash except during authorized hunting seasons. 

There are numerous quality-viewing opportunities from county roads that pass through the area. Binoculars or a spotting scope will help as many animals are best viewed from a distance.

Hot, dry weather reduced most wetlands and dried many up completely. Recent cooler temperatures and precipitation have allowed some wetlands to begin filling. Most shorebirds have left the area as they continue their migration south.

Winter residents such as spotted towhee, dark-eyed junco, white-crowned sparrow and northern shrike have arrived and may be seen in a variety of locations within the wildlife area.

For more information on access rules for Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area, please consult the Oregon Game Bird Regulations or call the wildlife area at 541-963-4954.
