"Help a hunter out "

I just moved from Louisiana to the bend area and I am looking for any advice possible for bow deer hunting around me. I have no idea where to even begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are a few areas near you that aren't open for deer unless you draw an elk tag. but other than that it's mostly open.

Mule deer hunting in Oregon is pretty poor, even worse after last winter. if anyone tells you otherwise they aren't from eastern Oregon, probably Portland and they don't know any better . I have alfalfa fields 30 miles east of you with NO deer in them for a week at a time. they used be by the hundreds . so do the math and don't expect too much or you'll be disappointed.


I would pick an area open to general bow hunting and find a spot you like. then hope it's not over run with hunters when season opens. everyplace is someone's honey hole so there isn't any wrong or right place to go.

WY or CO would be better, no doubt.

Where to hunt is more of where you'd like to hunt. I'm not a bow hunter so I can't help you much, I like the more open country with a 264 magnum. you might consider the high cascade hunts, or the west side blacktail. I'd think those would be better bow hunting spots but I can't say.

I would also add an elk tag to your pack. There are more elk out there then there are deer.

I only spend 40 to 50 days a year in Eastern oregon, not "resident" of the eastside so take this with a grain of salt.

There are plenty of deer over east, yeah the numbers aren't as good as before, but somehow we manage to fill our tags every year with deer up to 190 within 3 hours of bend on 2 point rifle tags.

So yeah, Oregon deer sucks. (if you don't scout, don't get out of your truck, or hunt hard)

Silvies, Murders creek, juniper, beattys butte, interstate, etc all hold deer. Just start scouting, learning the ground, and have fun.

A lot of guys bait around bend and kill giant bucks every august.

Funny , I'm a life long resident in the area and an official Boone & Crockett measurer and I see very very few of these numourous monsters in the field or on the bench. must be a lot like big foot.


let me guess, guys who kill all these big bucks never get them scored because it gives up all their secrets. I bet that's it . silly me.

Us locals just don't know where or how to hunt. and our private land isn't as good as the heavy hunted public lands everyone knows that. and the fact we see 10% of the deer we used to means nothing. we're just hay seed dumbchits don't pay us no mind.


Anyway, deer hunting in eastern OR isn't a shadow of what it once was or nearly as good as the other states I hunt. but it's not hopeless. give it a try if nothing else you'll learn the area and maybe down the road you can draw a tag you'll enjoy.

Most of them never see the books.

Pay 20.00 to get your name in a book, whats the point?

I'm sure it used to be better, but every state used to be better.
