SALEM — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Commission meets Friday, Sept. 17 online beginning at 8 a.m.

The commission is expected to adopt remaining 2022 big game regulations, including a new Rocky Mountain bighorn hunt that is proposed to be added as part of a rotation among the states of Oregon and Washington and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

The commission will also approve funding for several access and habitat projects that provide hunting access or improve wildlife habitat on private land and approve a project recommended by the Oregon Conservation & Recreation Fund, which is a Green Jobs Training and Internship Program in partnership with Forest Park Conservancy and other natural resource organizations.

Commissioners will also hold a public forum for people to comment on topics not on the agenda the morning of Sept. 17 following the Director’s Report. To participate in the public forum, call the ODFW Director’s office at 503-947-6044 by Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 8 a.m.
