THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OREGON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE
Youth hunters can enter a drawing for a one-day guided hunt on the C2 Ranch, a 10,000-acre property near Eagle Point. Five lucky applicants will have an opportunity to harvest a southwest Oregon blacktail deer.
To be eligible, youth need to either have a Rogue Unit youth deer tag (630T) or are eligible to participate through the Youth “First Time” program for a 600-series tag.
It is free to apply and free to hunt for those who win the opportunity (winner must possess current hunting license and tag). ODFW will directly contact draw winners and coordinate a hunting date. Hunting dates are from Dec. 15 to Jan. 5, 2022.
The Access and Habitat Program helps to fund projects and provides hunter access and/or improve wildlife habitat on private land in Oregon. The A&H program is funded primarily by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses, big game auction and raffle tag sales.
The C2 Cattle Company is a conservation minded cattle ranch working to preserve the land and natural resources including wild game while operating a working cattle ranch. This youth hunt opportunity is also made possible by the Oregon Hunters Association Rogue Valley chapter.
