S.E. Oregon?
« on: January 23, 2012, 08:07:00 PM »
I was wondering if anybody is familiar with with the hunting/fishing conditions in S.E. Oregon.  We were interested in the area south of Jordan Valley on or around the Owyhee river.  It is a long way to scout so any information on where to get started would be appreciated.....Thanks

I'd call the BLM wildlife biologist in Burns.

S.E. Oregon is historically a rutting ground in Nov. for muleys. Lots of ground to cover and look over. It may be a decent Nov. hunt if you can draw the S.E. Whitehorse tag. It could be a hard hunt during the regular season unless you can do a lot of scouting.

Thanks Snag.  Which scouting method would you recommend, pickup, 4-wheeler, or on foot?

I know a guy that lives in Vale, or actually Adrian, he kills some awesome bucks every year. I think he probably hunts closer to the agricultural fields then way down in the Owyhee Breaks. His teenage daughter killed a monster with her rifle last fall.

Talk about luck...he drew a sheep tag down there one year, then his wife drew the very same tag for sheep the following year!

I'd go over for a long weekend sometime in July and hit the highest ridges at daylight and dusk, sit down and glass with the sun at your back.

Another option is putting a boat in Owyhee Reservoir and going upstream (south) and hunting some of the side canyons off the lake.

Good luck and have fun!

TK, his daughter drew the tag just a few years ago too! The whole family! He helped a friend of mine get a nice sheep. He had been applying for 26 yrs.
