Hunters have until May 15 to apply for this fall's Oregon controlled hunts.

Applicants are encouraged to apply early so they can avoid long lines as the deadline approaches.

In 2002, hunters purchased about 423,000 applications for the June draw. To date 108,000 have been sold. Last year at this time 124,00 had been sold.

Tag applications cost $4.50 per species series. Hunters may apply from a point of sale license agent, or fax or mail the form provided in the 2003 Oregon Big Game Regulations on page 23.

The drawing will be conducted June 20.
