Attention Oregon Hunters!
Before heading out in the year 2002, hunters in Oregon are reminded to purchase their 2002 hunting license. This year's licenses expired Monday, December 31, 2001.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife encourages hunters and anglers to bring their 2001 license with them to purchase a new license to speed service and ensure accuracy. ODFW changed the computerized licensing system in early December to identify each license holder by a new Hunter/Angler Identification Number. Previously, the licensing system used social security numbers to uniquely identify individuals and track controlled hunt preference points.

Cougar hunters must purchase not only their new hunting license, but also a new cougar tag. The 2002 general cougar season begins January 1.

Prices for all annual licenses and tags remain the same as 2001: A resident hunting license is $17.50, combined resident hunting/fishing license is $33.75, and a resident cougar tag is $11.50. The prices of other tags and nonresident licenses are listed in the 2002 big game and sport fishing regulations booklets available at any license agent.
