Hunting and camping information for hunters

A Quiet Rural RV Park & Campground on the Williamson River A Sportsman’s Paradise

Hunting and camping near water sources Much of eastern Oregon has little water. As a result of this, livestock and wildlife often are dependent on artificial water sources. Additionally Oregon can experience periodic and sometimes severe drought conditions that impact both natural and artificial water sources. Drought can cause difficulties for livestock and wildlife. When some water sources dry up many animals may be forced to migrate long distances to water. This water can either be permanent streams or springs or artificial sites like guzzlers and livestock water cisterns. Drought impacts of reduced food and water are hardest on the young and the females trying to raise them. • Avoid camping at or near waterholes, springs, guzzlers, and other sources of water for wildlife and livestock. • Livestock are constrained by fences and do not have the option of moving to alternative water sources. • Avoid hunting over water sources when that activity keeps livestock and wildlife that waters during daylight hours from obtaining essential water. • Never alter or plug water sources to prevent livestock or wildlife from gaining access to water. • Remember that in many areas livestock producers have to haul water for their livestock, so don’t do anything that would prevent animals from reaching that water. • More information can be found at the ODFW wedsite “Drought and Fire Information Page” ( Camping and leaving personal property on public lands Regulations for public use of public lands vary from area to area. It is the responsibility of each individual to know the rules and regulations which govern public land use in the area they are using. In general, individuals are not allowed to camp or leave personal property or structures such as tree stands on public lands (including BLM or US forest Service lands) for more than 14 days. However, some areas are closed to camping or may have different stay limits. Hunters should contact the responsible land management agency prior to installing any cameras, tree stands or other personal property.

Strong current, big fish! Fishing in lakes, ponds, and streams is common practice but have you ever tried fast flowing rivers? It’s an amazing experience, even though conditions can be difficult. There are two ways to fish in rivers, depending on the strength of the current—fly fishing or fishing in pools. These difficult-to-access areas can be very gratifying to exploit, especially because they are often under-fished. Strong currents cause riverbed erosion, so fast flowing rivers usually have some deep pools where the current slows. Don’t neglect such zones, as they create whirlpools that lift and mix many micro-organisms that attract fish. Fishing with a light rod and using lures with sufficient lead is recommended. The farthest corners of these pools are always worth exploring. Jigging, using lures, or even casting with a simple rig and live bait are all efficient options. Just remember that you should retrieve your lure quickly, as it can easily snag in this type of water. Reduce the risk of snags by keeping your bait off the bottom and plenty of slack in your line. Keep your casts short and frequent, which is just as efficient as casting far from shore. Even if you’re careful, the chances are your line will snag and break anyway. Be prepared to fix your rig quickly and efficiently. Remember, the important thing is to keep casting: the more your line is in the water, the more likely you are to land a prize! Happy fishing!

Safety tips for summer fun (MS) -- The weather is heating up and Americans are heading outdoors to soak up the fun. Warm weather enthusiasts should keep safety on the top of their minds when they’re out camping, boating and barbecuing. CSA Group, a leader in testing and certification, wants to remind Americans to stay safe all summer with the following tips. Camping Stoves and Lanterns • Fuel-burning camping equipment, such as stoves, lanterns and outdoor cookers, should only be lit outdoors and at least 10 feet (3 meters) from tents, combustible materials and vehicles. Never light a stove or lantern inside a tent or vehicle. • Before use, carefully inspect parts for leaks, blockages or damage. • Keep loose, flammable clothing away from open flames. Carefully monitor children and pets around stoves and lanterns. Boats and Cabins • Ensure boats and cabins are equipped with proper emergency safety equipment, including first aid kits and fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide detectors and fire alarms. • When first opening your cabin, carefully inspect all appliances for damage from rodents or insects. • Always wear a personal flotation device. Never consume alcohol while operating any vehicle. Outdoor Gas Barbeques • Before firing up your barbecue for the first time, carefully inspect burners and burner tubes for blockages due to dirt, grease, insects or rust buildup. Clean or replace any blocked parts or have a certified technician make repairs. • Propane cylinders must be inspected and re-qualified every 12 years in the United States. A date stamp on the cylinder indicates when it was last qualified. Don’t use a rusty or damaged cylinder. If in doubt, have your tank replaced. • When purchasing or installing a gas barbecue, make sure that it carries the mark of an approved certification organization, such as CSA Group, indicating the barbecue has been tested to applicable national standards.

Place the bacon over the top of the roast. Roast uncovered until the meat thermometer reads 140o for rare, 160o for medium, about 60-90 minutes. Double the ground peppers if you like

Black bears are sly little foxes Depending on the area and the chosen hunting zone, black bears are hunted in the spring and/or fall. These animals can be found just about everywhere in our forests, and they frequent areas where there are waterways. Black bears are omnivores and eat just about everything they can forage. They are solitary animals except during the annual rut. Just like other big game, they regularly follow the same trails and are more active in the morning and at the end of the day. Choosing the right spot for bear hunting is hugely important. Before setting up a stand, which should be set up close to some water, hunters should look for signs of bears travelling through the area, including any scat. It is very rare to actually see black bears during scouting trips. Bears can smell humans over long distances and are extremely wary. Hunting from a stand that is at least ten feet high is recommended, no matter what type of hunting weapon is used. The bait site should be at an appropriate distance from the stand, depending on the weapon to be used and the geography of the chosen hunting site. For a bow or crossbow, the bait should be placed about 20 yards from the hide; 55 yards is ideal for a gun. To quickly attract the bear to your bait, the use of a bear bomb is essential. Orient your bait in such a way that the animal’s vital organs are in your sights. Site baiting has to be done on a regular basis in order to fool the bear more easily. Like other big game, black bears are more active in the morning and at the end of the day.

Game cameras A must for the modern hunter Most people don’t have the luxury of being able to do pre-season scouting at their usual hunting sites on a regular basis. That is why it is recommended to use modern technology to help you monitor the movements of big game before and during the hunt. The use of a game camera or trail timer is the best kept secret of top hunters in preparing for a successful hunting season. In the early 1980s, hunters used infrared timers to count the game frequenting their sites; however, this didn’t allow for the identification of sort or size. Some systems were developed that could record up to 200 game movements per day. Eventually, motion-sensitive 35-mm camera cameras were added to the devices, enabling hunters to have a better idea of which kind of game was moving through. These days, game cameras have entered the digital age, and now the photographs are saved on memory cards. There even exists a cellular surveillance system, with all the characteristics of a modern game camera; it sends photos and video to a hunter’s cell phone or computer at any time of the day or night. The modern hunter has a real advantage when using this technology for locating prize game within the hunting territory. Best of all, this type of equipment is now available at very reasonable prices. Keep in mind that the purpose of these handy electronic accessories is to scout the comings and goings of game within a territory. This information is helpful in managing a hunting site in order to attract the kind of A cellular surveillance system is now available; it sends photographs and video of game passing through your game desired. territory to your cell phone or computer.

Fluorocarbon monofilament Making leader lines more durable and much less visible! Naturally, fishing techniques vary according to the species of fish you hope to land. A trout has to be caught with finesse, whereas a pike has to be tricked onto your line. Anglers just have to learn to consider the habits of the target fish before making a final decision on the configuration of their rigs. Generally speaking, it is advisable to use a wire leader for species with sharp teeth. The reason for this is to prevent sudden line breakages that can put a premature end to the contest between angler and prey. Sometimes, though, this type of leader can spoil the subtlety of the rig in certain conditions and situations. These days, an alternative to wire leaders is available on the market. It is increasingly common to find fluorocarbon monofilament leader lines in tackle boxes. Available in all sizes, this kind of line has little elasticity and is invisible in the water. Once your rig is set, all you have to do is attach the leader to the main line with a swivel. This will ensure the durability and subtlety of the rig while speeding up bait changes. This method is also interesting because it allows anglers to use lightweight equipment with a small-diameter low-resistant line while using a personalized rig with a highcaliber fluorocarbon monofilament. Why go to all the trouble? Because you’re a true sports angler, and this way you can enjoy the challenge of reeling in a big fish with your highly resistant rig!

Camping is a popular outdoor activity that attracts many enthusiasts year after year. Some people camp every month while others only have time for one great excursion into the wilderness each year. This year, millions of camping trips will take place across the country. Preparation is key to a successful camping trip. Whether campers plan to spend one night or several in the great outdoors, there are certain tips to follow to ensure your trip is as fun and safe as possible.

Gear In order to be comfortable, stock up on camping gear. Tents, sleeping bags and other gear need not be the most expensive. Quality, moderately priced gear works well, too. With care and maintenance, camping gear can last for several years. A tent will be your first line of defense against the outdoors. Although plenty of people prefer to sleep out under the stars, a tent is a place to avoid inclement weather and insects and have a little privacy. Your tent need not be too big, unless you plan to share it with many of your fellow campers. Since you will be spending the majority of your time outdoors, don’t feel pressured to buy the tent equivalent of a three-room suite. A good tent should be sturdy, weather-resistant and large enough to fit the people who will be sleeping in it during your trip. Invest in a pad to place on the floor of the tent to shield you from the hard ground. The pad will make sleeping more comfortable. If you will be sleeping during warm-weather months, you don’t have to worry about an expensive sleeping bag. An average-weight one will be just fine. Don’t forget to pack a pillow. A cooler filled with foods and drinks will tide you over for the trip. If you plan to cook, you will need Alternators, Generators, Starters • Complete Line to bring the ingredients for meals. Otherwise sandwiches should suffice. Some campgrounds have grills of Batteries • Rebuilding and Exchange • Auto, and picnic tables available.

Where to camp Campsites may be public or private. Public campgrounds are generally funded by tax dollars and maintained by parks departments or government offices. They may be free to enter or charge a nominal fee for use. Because of the low cost involved, they may be quite popular and crowded during peak camping season. Private campsites are run by private companies or individuals and may also feature RV hookups. In many instances, private campsites sell memberships to interested parties, which gives access to certain private areas. They may have more amenities than public campsites. Private sites also may employ security personnel and maintenance crews to ensure the areas are clean and safe and to enforce campground rules. This may not be the case at public campsites, where conditions may be inconsistent from site to site. An online search of both public and private campsites nearby can help you determine which option best suits you. Consider national parks, national forests and even the Army Corps of Engineers, which manages many recreational areas.

Avoid critters Animals and insects are part of the camping experience. While they are unavoidable, there are some measures you can take to reduce the propensity for bothersome bug bites or clever critters raiding the cooler. Keeping a clean campsite is perhaps the most effective animal and insect deterrent. Ants and animals are attracted to food bits scattered around the site, so be sure to gather trash and dispose of it properly each day. Try not to store food on the ground. Whenever possible, keep food locked away in an airtight cooler or other container. Dry foods can be stored under lock and key in the car. Racoons, squirrels, birds, and skunks all have been known to patrol campgrounds for an easy meal. Also, you don’t want to lure in larger predators, such as bears or wild cats. To avoid insects, steer clear of perfumed products. Keep lights dim at night, as bright lights attract mosquitoes and other biting bugs. Use appropriate insect repellents to help further repel bugs.

Closer isn’t always better Many new campers make the mistake of choosing campsites that are in close proximity to bathrooms and clubhouses and other reminders of civilization. But these areas tend to feature heavy foot a and car traffic and can make for a noisy experience. To avoid the lights, sounds and bustle of too many people, stick with campsites farther off the beaten path. You may need to walk a little farther, but you will likely enjoy a more peaceful camping experience. Plan for the wetness Even if it doesn’t rain, dew is an inevitable part of camping outdoors. Warm weather with high humidity can make dew even more plentiful. Use a shower curtain or another plastic impenetrable liner beneath your tent to reduce wetness and chilliness while you sleep. Be sure to bring in clothes and remove items from your clotheslines before you retire for the night if you don’t want them damp the next morning. Use tarps to cover anything that should not get wet. Be sure to pack plenty of dry socks and changes of clothes and store them in zipper-top bags in the event clothing does get wet. Wet clothes can be uncomfortable and increase your risk for hypothermia.

Carry in and carry out Part of the magic of camping is being able to enjoy nature and experience the great outdoors. It is crucial to protect natural landscapes as much as possible and to exercise caution around plant life. In addition, be mindful of animal habitats. What you bring to the campsite, including trash, should be n removed when you are done. Do not leave a mess behind. Camping can be an enjoyable and inexpensive vacation option. Learning the ropes and heeding some advice can make camping an enjoyable getaway year after year.

It would be awful to lose out on fresh venison by uselessly injuring a Unless you know that the animal was fatally deer or by not taking all possible steps shot, it is recommended to wait at least 30 minutes before beginning your search. to find where it went down.
