Thank you for your interest in big game hunting Pine Creek, Oxbow, Forrest and Dunstan Conservation Areas.  

Hunting is allowed on Pine Creek, Oxbow, Forrest, and Dunstan Conservation Areas. Deer and elk hunting require a private-issue Hunting Permit specific to the Conservation Area. These are issued in limited numbers via random-draw lottery.

Bird hunting requires an Annual Bird Hunting Permit at Pine Creek.

All hunters and visitors must fill out daily access permits.

All other wildlife is protected on the Conservation Areas and is not allowed to be hunted or harassed – including but not limited to: ground squirrels and other small mammals; predators such as coyotes, badgers, bobcats and cougars; reptiles such as snakes and lizards; and non-game birds of all types.

All hunters must follow ODFW regulations and seasons for each hunt.

At the Pine Creek Conservation Area, staff will be using vehicles to patrol the property throughout the hunting seasons. Be aware of the potential disturbance and carry your hunting permit with you at all times to show upon request.
