  • The traditional Friday night line-up to buy tags on the eve of Western Oregon's general rifle season for buck deer is a thing of the past.
    The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife now offers hunters who miss the tag-sale deadline a chance to get a tag mid-season and begin hunting — but it'll cost them.
    Hunters who pay an extra $15 and sign an affidavit stating they have not yet hunted during the season will be allowed to buy the tag.
    The change came late last year as a way to keep hunters from losing their opportunity to hunt because of 11th-hour obstacles to getting to a license outlet — or simply forgetting to buy their tag on time.
    To get a tag, visit the ODFW field offices in White City or Gold Beach, or call 503-947-6100 for directions.
