    I was hoping I'd be in the 25% who got the draw with only 2 points for the Willamette Unit, but I busted out. Oh well, next year I'll have three points and hopefully get the draw.

    There's always regular season buck. Here's hoping- want to make sausage & pepperoni in the fall!

    I got my elk tag. Cost me all 11 of my points, but I got it. Sorry you didn't draw.

    Got the antlerless last year so just buying point this time. I miss the old days of getting this and the additional deer tag every year. Way too many people putting in for the Willamette tags nowadays that don't have a definite place to hunt as most of the areas are privately owned.

    I didn't draw an antlerless deer tag either (Alsea unit). I thought a was a cinch this year going in with all of my 6 points! :(

    Exactly! My brother and his wife just bought 4 acres in that unit, and they have permission from all the landowners around them to hunt their property! First time in years I actually face the prospect of bagging a deer in Western Oregon!

    My son didn't draw his Interstate youth and I didn't get my Northside buck, so we will do general season this year. It's OK we usually always get one...
