    Hello, and welcome! Its always good to meet another waterfowl hunter. I recommend the ODFW hunting access map that list places to hunt water fowl, and big game in all different areas of Oregon.
    It can be located at.
    ODFW Hunting Access Map

    Do you use a Canine with you or do you manually retrieve them when you down one? I have a trained yellow lab but he is getting old and i am getting ready to retire him soon as he has arthritis, and is getting pretty old to be hunting birds.

    Hope that info helps.

    There is going to be an area around Forest Grove opening up maybe next season to Waterfoul hunting. The local DU club has had a large hand in it :)
