Home arrow News arrow Local News arrow LAST-CHANCE HUNT TAGS GO ON SALE


By Dick Mason

Observer Staff Writer

Hunters will be lining up in Union and Wallowa counties Monday morning at license agents that will be selling 2,100 tags for limited-entry deer and elk hunts.

The statewide sale, which begins at 10 a.m., is for tags left over in 12 hunts after the annual drawings were held this spring for controlled tags. Hunters had not applied for the leftover tags. The hunts are often less desirable for reasons including difficulty of access, officials said.

A year ago, a leftover tag sale was conducted statewide on July 1. In La Grande, more than 70 buyers lined up at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife office.

This year buyers can purchase their tags for themselves or for another person. Hunters will apply via the statewide computerized point-of-sale system.

For information on the hunts, check the 2002 edition of the ODFW's Oregon Big Game Regulations.

Following are hunts for which leftover tags will be sold. The two youth hunts with leftover tags are limited to hunters ages 12-17.

123M — Melrose-N. Sixes (Southern Oregon) Muzzleloader — 110 tags.

135R— S. Paulina (Central Oregon) Bow — 95 tags.

142 — Hood Unit — 625 tags.

143A— E. Biggs (Central Oregon)— 107 tags, no non resident tags.

Elk hunts

226A1 — Powers Unit (Southern Oregon) #1— 82 tags.

Non-Oregon residents may purchase the tags. Sales are limited to 5 percent for non-residents for each hunt. One of the hunts Monday is no longer available to non-residents because the quota has been exceeded.
