Before going into the outdoors in pursuit of big game mammals, the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW) and Oregon State Police (OSP) remind hunters to review the 2013 Oregon Big Game Regulations for important information including:

* Significant changes in bag limits for elk hunters have eliminated the harvest of antlerless elk on National Forest lands of the Cascade's west slope units including Dixon, Evans Creek, Indigo, McKenzie, Rogue and Santiam. Archery hunters should also pay close attention because in past years they were allowed to harvest antlerless elk in most of these units. These changes are in response to concerns about overall elk populations and calf recruitment, so hunters going to these areas are urged to study the regulations closely to learn about legal bag limits for their hunting season.

* Hunters with an Oregon Disabilities Hunting and Fishing Permits should closely review the regulations for bag limit changes during elk seasons. The harvest of antlerless elk on National Forest lands was eliminated for persons holding those permits (check page 88).

* Hunters who possess controlled elk hunt tags should closely review both controlled hunt bag limits and hunt area boundaries.

Also, due to high fire danger this year many private landowners will either limit or not allow access to hunters, especially during early seasons. It is the responsibility of every hunter to know the access policies for any private land they intend to hunt. It is never an excuse to not have received permission to hunt on anyone's private land. Questions about access to private lands for hunting should be directed to the respective landowner.

Copies of the 2013 Oregon Big Game hunting regulations may be obtained from any point of sale license agent, at any ODFW office, online at http://bit.ly/14Eoxuf. Questions about the hunting regulations can be directed to any local ODFW or OSP office.
