The Big Game Access Permit application window for the 2022 Deer and Elk hunting season is now closed. We had 130 applications this year. Applicants should be contacted by the end of business hours on July 14th about results. Once results are known, we will post remaining available hunts on the website, which will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thank you for your interest in big game hunting Pine Creek, Oxbow, Forrest and Dunstan Conservation Areas. The 2023 season will be announced in April.
Hunting is allowed on Pine Creek, Oxbow, Forrest, and Dunstan Conservation Areas. Deer and elk hunting require a special hunting access permit usually only issued in limited numbers. Program staff hold a lottery to choose applicants for these hunts. Bird hunting requires an Annual Bird Hunting Permit at Pine Creek. All hunters must fill out daily access permits.
As per our Regulations, there is no varmint or predator hunting allowed on the Conservation Areas. All hunters must follow ODFW regulations and seasons for each hunt.
