Hey folks, I recently found out that I'll be working this summer down in lakeview, while returning to Portland on weekends. This means I'll have a chance to drive through pretty much the whole Oregon blacktail range every week. While I was originally planning on hunting the northern coast range, now I'll have a chance to scout anywhere I like.

So the question is, if you guys could hunt anywhere, where would you pick? I'm not looking for monsters, just a place with a good shot at success, that I can visit and explore all summer. Thanks in advance.

i see you looking on here lots waiting for a reply 

DONT GIVE UP THE SHIP wait a little longer 

most are still in winter hibernation and even though they can point and click a mouse and read , their fingers are still too frozen to type 

i've noticed about 20-25 members looking and reading and lots of non members 

soon as the winter thaw happens and hunters get twitchy then some will respond  :D

facebook takes away lots that love to chat , it makes it more personal and not out for everyone to read .

Years ago I ran BLM tree planting crews .... we planted some units up above Galice ... I think we called it Bear Camp ... the start of the back road system that goes over to Gold Beach .... I have always wanted to go back an hunt that area.

 

Don't know about now, but back then the deer heard was tremendous in that area.

 

Also I always wanted to hunt the Kalmiopsis area west of Cave Junction .... sighted the biggest Blacktail Bucks I have ever seen in that area.

Those areas look really good, thanks. I really like the more out of the way spots like you're recommending; I grew up in the wilderness and it feels good to get out when I can.

Hey guys, figured it's time to update this. I'm going to try to hunt the kalmiopsis, assuming the trails I want aren't closed down by the time the season opens. Quick question though; does anyone know a good butcher in the grants pass area?

Well, I was planning on heading down to the kalmiopsis area but it's just been shut down. Anyone got a last minute alternative to suggest?

Yes, to the east .... up GreyBack way ... or up toward Cooking Green ... or the back roads that go along the Cali border to the west of Mt Ashland ski resort.

 

Or down Galice way .. Bear Camp ... the back road to Gold Beach.

ropes 

think his problem is all the fires creating closures and limited access , although he didnt say that .

lots of fires in southern oregon and nor cal with lots of closures

I just looked at the fire map and see they got fires in the Chetco & back behind Grey Back. 

 

I would head down to Bear Camp road and head for the coast, remote area ... wetter type forest. But is still dry.

I can see from here in the valley that the article I suggested is accurate to the extent that lake county is blanketed in smoke
