SALEM, Ore.-- ODFW says every hunter who purchased 2017 big game or turkey tags needs to report their hunt results by the deadline, which is Jan. 31, 2018 for most tags.

Hunters are required to report on each deer, elk, cougar, bear, pronghorn and turkey tag purchased—even if they were not successful or did not hunt.

There is a $25 penalty for those who do not report by the deadline. 

Hunters can report online or by calling ODFW. 

The website to report is www.myodfw.com or reportmyhunt.com. 

Hunters can aslo call 1-866-947-6339 to talk to a customer service representative. 

Hunters who fail to report 2017 deer or elk tags by the deadline will be penalized $25 when they purchase a 2019 hunting license.

This penalty is assessed once, regardless of the number of unreported tags.

ODFW says it needs this data to controll the amount of tags they issue.

The mandatory reporting program was put in place in 2007.

ODFW says hunters that report on time are entered into a drawing to win a special big game tag.

ODFW selects three names each year and the winners can choose a deer, elk, or pronghorn tag.

Hunters who win get an expanded hunt area and extended season, similar to auction and raffle tags that hunters can pay thousands for.
