ODFW will host several free seminars about controlled hunts in March and April in Redmond, Tualatin, and Salem.
During the seminars, ODFW staff will cover the basics of tag distribution, preference points, draw success rates, and considerations for making a hunt your first or second choice. We’ll also share tips and tricks to maximize your hunting opportunities year after year.
