Default Oregon hunting 2020

I figured Iíd start another thread about this years hunting and fishing adventures. So far we have gotten out ocean fishing once and have gotten a few cameras up. We have 2 elk tags, 2-4 bear tags and 3 deer tags between us this year so we will see how it all plays out. Iíll try and post as regular as I can but figured Iíd start a thread now as bear season opens up Saturday and fishing has been off the hook.
The wife doubled up on some nice lingcod.

Spring turkey came and went far too fast but between our 6 tags and taking some newbies and friends out we finished the season with 13 birds on the ground. Here is a photo of some of the birds we got to be a part of.
Then we have been focused on scouting a checking the cameras. So Iíll share some photos from so far.





Got my tree stand put in place and hoping some good luck comes my way. The wife is trying out a ground blind about 300 yards from my stand.
I hope you all enjoy the adventure seeing some hunting in a different world almost on the west coast. Season starts the end of August for elk and deer and the Tuna are starting to show themselves.

Thanks. I donít get on here as much but wanted to try and do another one with all the craziness going on. I also enjoyed others adventures and being able to live through them when I have nothing going on.

I killed a black bear with my handgun about 45 miles north of Grants Pass in 2018 and going back for another August 2021! Some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen!!!
Wish it wasnít such a politically liberal place, or Iíd consider relocating.

Well the state as a whole is pretty conservative but you add those big cities and we all get canceled out. Who did you hunt with down south?

A few years back I met a guy through work who lives in GP. He always wanted to kill a hog and I a bear. We made a deal to trade each other a hunt. Was weird picking him up at airport the first time, but we had an excellent hog hunt at my place that weekend and a great friendship began. Weíve hunted together over the last few years in TX, OR, and AZ. Heís has become one of my best friends. I go stay with him and he takes me out to a few of his honey holes. All I pay for is airfare and a license and he does the same when he comes here.

This is the last check of local deer cameras before I leave in the morning for a couple weeks due to military stuff. Got a new buck on camera that looks to have a double main beam.

The big guy is still coming around and hope to put an arrow in him come September.

Heck yes.

In your turkey collage, bottom row, middle girl...... isn’t she instagram famous or something? I think her husband is too, and do fitness as well. Anyways, haven’t been on Instagram in about a year or so but she looked familiar.

That would be Courtney aka HeroOutdoorJourney on Instagram. The bottom right is another pretty popular Instagram influencer and thatís Taren. We helped Taren get her first turkey and Courtney was having some issues with finding good turkey spots. So we helped them out. Though Courtney and Steven arenít together anymore.

Hello from your neighbor a little north. Headed out Wednesday for a 4 day bear hunt with the daughter to try and get her first black bear. Plan to take a few more days off of work this season since we aren’t headed to Texas this year to hunt. Hopefully I can get her on an elk also this season.
