A new program is underway that allows hunters access to more land.  Two private landowners---and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODF&W) have agreed to allow public hunting on over 15,000 acres of public and private land during hunting season for pronghorn, elk, deer, and cougar.  

 

The Aspen Valley Ranch is mostly on private land near Post, Oregon and offers more than 8-thousand acres of hunting area.  The Dixie Meadows hunting area is about 7-thousand acres on public land in the Ochoco Forest northeast of Prineville.

 

In return for the use of the private land, the ODF&W, will help the owners clear their land of overgrown juniper trees, and various invasive plants, and will develop some water sources.

 

Separate restrictions apply to each area and you must have reservations in advance.  Contact Meg Eden with the ODF&W at 541-460-2266
