Bird hunting, fishing regulations set

August 2, 2013

EUGENE, Ore.—The Fish and Wildlife Commission adopted bird hunting and fishing regulations today at its meeting in Eugene.

Bird hunting regulations adopted cover the period from Sept. 1, 2013-May 31, 2014. Key changes from last year’s regulations follow. Printed copies of the regulations will be available later in August.

Duck/other migratory birds:

Canvasback bag limit increases to 2 (up from 1 last year)
Possession limit for all migratory game birds increases to 3x the daily bag limit (up from 2X)
Scaup season will revert to moderate limit of 3/day, 86-day season

September Canada goose:

Klamath County reopens (closed to September goose since 2006)
Bag limit back to 5/day in eastern Oregon (up from 3/day)

Regular goose seasons:

Allow white goose hunting on Sauvie Island Wildlife Area (primarily snow geese), which will increase public land opportunity for geese in NW Oregon. (NW Goose permit needed.)
Separate dark goose limits into individual limits for Canada geese and white-fronted geese
Bag limit of 4 for Canada geese in most areas and 6 for white-fronted geese in most areas
Different seasons for white-fronts and Canada geese in Malheur County
Shorten split during Klamath County Canada goose season so it is identical to Lake and Harney counties
Increase bag limit for white geese in Malheur County to 20/day (up from 10/day)

Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area:

Require free self-service daily hunt permit

Non-resident licenses

The 3-Day Non-Resident Bird Hunting License will cover all game birds and include a Wildlife Area parking permit. (Non-resident must still purchase applicable tags, validations.) Previously, this license did not include a parking permit or cover mourning dove, band-tailed pigeon, turkey and snipe hunting.

Upland birds

Most upland game bird seasons are set under a five-year framework, so 2013-14 seasons are similar to last year except for standard date shifts. The only major changes from last year are:

Closure of part of the Whitehorse Unit to sage-grouse hunting to protect birds using habitat impacted by last year’s fires.
No minimum shot size for turkey, as new alloys provide effective shot in smaller sizes.

Eastern Oregon Oct 5th
Western Oregon Oct 12th

Thanks for the great post. I see you listed ( I think ) the opening days for east and west. Did you happen to see how many days the season will last? P.S I can't find the info you posted on the web. Do you have a link you could share? Thanks!
