    Hey all,

    Many years ago, I rifle hunted for deer with my father around Oregon, but after he died, I switched to bow hunting since that is what the people I know were doing. This year I picked up a deer rifle tag and hunted on a friends property, but was unsuccessful.

    Here I have this tag and no good places to go. I would like to find a place where I could go for a single day and have a reasonable chance of seeing something. I don't have a 4x4 rig or anything like that, but I was hoping someone could point me towards some good places for deer hunting. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I don't mind a good hike.

    Thanks!

    No rifle hunting allowed where I have bow hunted in the past. No shotgun either...

    I am assuming you purchased a general season cascade buck tag? Or did you get a coastal?

    I bought a "Western Deer Rifle Tag" that I thought was good for both the cascade and the coastal regions. Is that not right?

    Any help is appreciated...

    It should be good for both regions (although Cascade deer hunting is closed this week).
