The Applegate Valley’s wildlands make for steep and adventurous hunting grounds. Whether or not you fill your tag, the diversity of trees, plants in this mountains-and-river landscape make for a great outing.
The local ecosystem is controlled by healthy populations of bear and mountain lions, but plenty of black tail deer and game birds remain for hunters. Look for both valley and mountain quail, ruffed grouse and sooty grouse.
Get your tags from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and respect local hunting regulations and private property boundaries. Hiring a local outfitter is a great way to responsibly navigate the local terrain.
