Oregon offers a vast variety of both big game and small game hunting as well as waterfowl and upland gamebird.


Big Game hunting


The primary big game species available to hunt in Oregon is bear, deer, elk, and cougar, special hunt permits are required for bighorn sheep, mountain goat, and antelope. Moose hunts are not available in Oregon.


Wild boar hunting or feral swine opportunities are available in Oregon but far and few between. No license is required but it’s highly unlikely you’ll find wild boar on public land. With permission, you are allowed to hunt wild boar on private property but under Oregon state law it is illigal to sell wild boar hunts.


Small Game Hunts


Oregon allows gray squire hunts and rabbit hunting year round. You can also hunt or trap a wide variety of furbearers in Oregon as well. The most common are bobcat, fox, marten, muskrat, mink, raccoon, river otter, skunk weasel, and beaver.


Upland Game Bird Hunting


Pheasant, Grouse, Partridge, Turkey, and quail are among the most commonly hunted upland game birds in Oregon


Waterfowl Hunts


Oregon has a rich and diverse population of geese and duck throughout the state.
