Hunting Outlook

WESTERN OREGON - Trapping of bobcat and red and gray foxes is open, and populations are healthy throughout Western Oregon. River otter, beaver and raccoon populations are all healthy and trapping should be good through the season, which ends March 15 for these species.

JACKSON/JOSEPHINE - Waterfowl season closes Sunday, and late-season success likely will be slow. Some late goose hunting could be OK on private pastures, provided the birds haven't been hunted hard already. The Denman Wildlife Area has its fields fully flooded, and success has been fair. The Hall tract is open for hunting Saturday and Sunday. All other tracts on the Wildlife Area are open everyday through the season.

Bear and turkey seasons are over. Pheasant and grouse hunting remain open through January, but late-season success has been light.

DOUGLAS - Turkey season is over in Douglas County.

COOS - Waterfowl are concentrated on mud flats, and hunting for them has been very good throughout Coos Bay around Charleston.

KLAMATH - Frozen water conditions have made duck hunting slow, with birds leaving the area en masse. Late-season grouse hunting is good along creek beds now that the leaf drop has finished. The season ends Sunday.

LAKE - Waterfowl have moved out of the area en masse because of frozen water conditions. The season ends Sunday.

HARNEY - Waterfowl hunting on Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is slow. Frozen water is pushing birds south. The season ends Sunday.

SUMMER LAKE - Duck hunting has been fair around open water. The season ends Sunday.
