MEDFORD, Ore. -– In a few weeks, hunters can head outdoors with their rifle to harvest deer. The big day is September 29th.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates the season will be better than normal this year. A good number of bucks escaped the season last year, but your location will be key for the start of the season.
The weather could be warmer than usual at the start of the season, so officials remind everyone to keep the heat in mind and dress the deer as fast as possible.
