It is now time to get dialed in for 2017 in Oregon and many other Western States. I do believe that 2017 is going to be a great year for hunters. It almost time to go to the O.D.F.W. site and check out the statistics soon and determine where you want to put in for!
Ammo is lower in price and if we can get the Predators down, then we can have some survival of game going into 2017 hunting seasons. Those that are willing to get out in the winter months, there is a great deal of predator hunting that can be done.
Using onXmaps HUNT is a great way to get a jump on hunting, before putting in for your tags:
The following bucks have not shown up during the month of December. during the second season archery season.
On the Oregon Antelope-Pronghorn Hunters (Facebook), there was a statement that a hunter drew a Hart Mtn Lope Tag last year and used something like 25 points. He drew again this year Go Figure!
Oregon is a great state to get a Pope & Young Pronghorn, so if you are bowhunter give me a jingle or email! Got lots of spots for bow hunters for sure! Why wait 12-25 years to get a rifle tag, though sometime we all like to pull the trigger on a Booner Lope!
The deal has been I expect a short story and pictures, the information is FREE. A 2015 Pronghorn hunter, asked for help to harvest a big Dinosaur in a limited area, not computer or GPS savvy, wanted a guide, whatever it took. I got one of my group hunters (David was a 2010 Lope hunter in the area and Mike was 2011 hunter in the area) (my first Booner came from this spot) to overnight current maps and direction to spots with water from a May 2015 scouting. All the details. His picture was one with little to show and a 1 line comment, I shot the monster at 300 yards. I would have expected more for all the effort put into getting him in on a big Lope… Hell never got the official score either…
My suggestion is that you need a Garmin that has color screen, a slot for Micro SD Card and the mapping softwarefromonXmaps HUNT out of Montana. I can be contacted via the following email addresses for any questions you might have for on first interview. Free. Intro of me: I am home base out of Oregon –
