  • Amanda Alexander not only is the cover girl for all that is Oregon big-game hunting, she's also the poster face for successful hunting on public lands. Alexander, of Redding, Calif., is on the cover of 2012 Oregon Big Game Regulations booklet with a five-point Rocky Mountain elk she shot in northeast Oregon in 2010.
    Alexander followed that up last year with another elk. Along with the two shot in consecutive years by her husband, Ira, the Alexanders have bagged four elk in two consecutive years of general-season hunting with over-the-counter archery tags.
    The elk on the cover was taken in the Starkey Unit.
    Alexander is joined on this year's cover by Natalie Sutter with a mule deer buck she killed in the Fossil Unit in 2010. Sutter, from Mitchell, is an ODFW employee, and a family member submitted the photo, says Michelle Dennehy, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's Wildlife Division spokeswoman.
    The hunting regulations synopsis is now available at license outlets and at ODFW offices statewide.
    The photographs on the cover were picked from a pile of public photo submissions, Dennehy says.
    Photo submissions of hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing are welcomed at odfw.web@state.or.us.
