SALEM, Ore. — ODFW and Oregon State Police remind hunters with a disabilities permit about bag limit changes in Wilson, Scappoose and Saddle Mt Units for upcoming general and controlled Coast Elk seasons.
Due to declining elk populations, these units no longer have an expanded bag limit, where hunters with a disabilities permit may take an antlerless elk. These bag limit changes also applied to archery hunters during their seasons earlier this year.
Hunters with a disabilities permit may take an antlerless elk or a legal bull in Applegate, Melrose, and Siuslaw units during Coast elk seasons (see page 99 of the regulations).
General centerfire seasons for Coast Elk run Nov. 12-15 (first season) and Nov. 19-25 (second season). See the 2016 Oregon Big Game Regulations for more information.
