Hunting Outlook

JACKSON - Bear season opened Aug. 1 and hunters have found good early success, thanks largely to a good bear population here. In hot weather, bears are favoring cooler and wetter drainages. Early mornings and evenings are best. As berries ripen, look for bears to frequent big berry patches. Hunters who shoot bears are reminded that the thawed skull must be checked at an Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife field office within 10 days.

KLAMATH - Coyote hunting is best in irrigated pastures and near other water, especially where young waterfowl and rodents are plentiful. Hunters are reminded that the Lower Klamath Lake Wildlife Refuge and Klamath Marsh Wildlife Refuge are closed to coyote hunting, and hunters should always ask for permission before entering private land.

HARNEY - Coyote hunting has been slow because of relatively low population levels likely caused by cyclical drops in rabbit and rodent populations.
