If you're an Oregon Deer Hunter, or you hunt Pronghorn, Bighorn Sheep, Elk or Rocky Mountain goats, the deadline to purchase the application is May 15th.
There are several ways to apply for a controlled hunt in Oregon. You can go to a license agent, by fax or apply by mail.
If you're applying by fax or mail, you'll need this form.
For those of you who put in for the Oklahoma Controlled Hunts, you'd better get over to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife's website and enter before the May 15th deadline.
Starting this year, applications will only be taken online. So don't be looking for the booklets at Wal-Mart or your favorite Sporting Goods stores because they won't be there.
How To Score A Deer
Now that most deer season's are over and the deer hunting is done for another year, many of you are wondering how to score a deer.
It seems that scoring carries a mystical nature to it. It's like some secret code passed down by the Templar Knights or something.
7 Reasons You'll Lose Your Deer Lease This Year
I received an email from a buddy the other day. Seems him and his group are losing their deer hunting lease that they've had for the last 12 years. This is a large deer hunting lease that has quite a few members. My buddy doesn't know where he'll find another deer lease to get on for the upcoming season. They've taken some nice deer off of that lease over the years. I know they'll miss the deer hunting that it provided.
I ran across this story in the Houston Chronical about an outfitter in Texas who runs hunts for young boys.
The outfitter, Mike Arnold is a past president of the Texas Trophy Hunters Association.
His outfit, called the Cross Trail Outfitters, has a simple Mission Statement.
"Building men, preserving our heritage and sharing our faith"
Okay, be honest, how many of you that live in States or Provinces that have late deer hunting season have forgotten about deer hunting? If you're like I used to be, you're probably thinking about the upcoming fishing season or you're hunting Small Game and Waterfowl.
But you could be missing out on the best time to take a good buck.
I ran across this story today while browsing a homesteading forum. Seems this lady in Asheville NC, who also is the Wildlife Correspondent for Peta (go figure), sent this letter in to the editor of the Asheville Citizen-Times.

Montana Rancher David Lee has come up with a very unique way to say "Thank You" to our disabled veterans.
David has opened up his 30,000 acre ranch in Eastern Montana to disabled vetrans so they can go Elk hunting with a bow.
I wish I could tell you that I bought the Mr. Heater "Big Buddy" Propane heater to go hunting or fishing with, but I didn't.
I was visiting Family in Oklahoma when this year's Ice Storms hit. We thought we had everything we needed in case the Electric went out when someone mentioned "What are we going to do for heat if the electric goes out?" Duh...we didn't think about heat!
Wow, this just blew me away when I saw it on Remington's website.
I hope that Remington won't change too many things with the Marlin line. Remington and Marlin are two of my favorite gunmakers and they're both still making them here in the U.S.A. (yeah, I know about the Spartan line of O/U's, rotating block muzzleloaders made in Spain and the Serbian made 798's, but the main line is still made here) I hope they continue to do so.« go back — keep looking »
