More than 880 tags left over from the limited-entry spring bear hunts will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 10 a.m. Monday, March 15, at license agents statewide.
The following tags will available for sale:
712A - Wilson/Trask - 99 total tags with no more than 10 being sold to nonresidents.
722A - Southwest Oregon - 728 total tags with no more than 45 being sold to nonresidents.
756T - Wenaha Unit Youth - 29 total resident tags.
757T - Sled Springs/Chesnimnus Youth - 20 tags with no more than two being sold to nonresidents.
760T - Minam/Imnaha Youth - Eight tags with no more than two being sold to nonresidents.
The three youth hunts with leftover tags are limited to hunters 12 to 17 years old who are accompanied by a nonhunting adult.
The tags being sold were left over in five of the 16 spring bear hunts after the February drawing for controlled bear tags. Leftover tags are those for which hunters did not apply. The hunts are often less desirable because they require landowner permission, access is difficult or supply exceeds the demand.
