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 is open through Jan. 25, and success has been slow. The Denman Wildlife Area has had its fields fully flooded, and success has been fair. The Hall tract is open for hunting only on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays throughout the season. All other tracts on the Wildlife Area are open every day through the season.

Bear and turkey seasons are over.

DOUGLAS - Turkey season is over.

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

KLAMATH - Frozen water conditions are slowing the duck hunting, with birds leaving the area en masse.

Late-season grouse hunting is good along creek beds now that the leaf drop has finished.

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

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

SUMMER LAKE - Duck hunting has been fair around open water.
