    Be informed and take action!

    OHA to Oregon Governor By Amy Patrick, OHA Outreach Coordinator [email protected] OHA delivered a letter to Governor Brown’s office on April 6 advocating for the continued access to our outdoor are-as through hunting and fishing opportunities. While many locations have been closed, such as state parks, US Forest Service and BLM sites, and numerous beach and river ac-cess areas, Oregon’s hunting and fishing seasons have re-mained intact. However, the governor’s directive to stay home raised concerns regarding the certainty of our spring bear and turkey seasons. As stated in the letter, going afield has great therapeutic benefit and can be

    easily accomplished with adherence to the social distancing guidelines contained in the governor’s directive. Emphasis was given to the ability to recreate either in family groups or in a solitary manner and the inherent desire for hunters to distance themselves while participating in this type of recreation. The letter closed with a reminder of the importance of maintaining individual opportunities to enjoy Oregon’s outdoors and a request for strong consideration that these options continue to be allowed as the state deals with the COVID-19 issues. The full letter can be read on the OHA website at www.oregonhunters.org.

    Deer, Elk Tags Reduced From May OHA Tracker Fewer tags will be available in eastern Oregon due to poor mule deer numbers observed last fall. A total of 3,953 buck tags will be eliminated from 12 units along with 287 antler-less tags. Elk tag offerings will also be trimmed by 670, including hunts within the Imnaha, Maury, Sled Springs and Chesnimnus units. Check the ODFW news website for a detailed table of the new numbers per unit: www.dfw.state.or.us/news/2020/ index.asp
