May 4 is deadline to purchase big game raffle tickets

Salem, Ore. – May 4 is the deadline to purchase big game raffle
hunt tickets for the chance to win a special extended-season tag to
hunt deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep or Rocky Mountain
goat.

Raffle tickets can be purchased online, at license agents and
ODFW offices that sell licenses, or by mail/fax order. Tickets
purchased by mail or fax order must be received at ODFW
Headquarters, 3406 Cherry Ave NE, Salem OR 97303 by 5 p.m. on May
4; forms are available online or on page 23 of the 2009 Oregon Big
Game Regulations. 

The winning tickets will be drawn at 7:15 p.m. at the Oregon
Hunters Association State Convention to be held at the Spirit
Mountain Casino in Grand Ronde on May 16, 2009. Raffle tickets will
also be on sale at the convention from 5-6:30 p.m. but because of
the time involved in printing purchasers’ information on the
tickets, hunters are strongly encouraged to buy their tickets in
advance of the event.

Tickets purchased online or at license agents will be
pre-printed with the purchaser’s name, address, and phone number.
Additional space is provided to designate the ticket to another
person if desired. Designated tickets or tickets not fully
completed by the purchasing deadline of May 4 must be received at
ODFW’s Salem headquarters by 5 p.m. Thursday, May 14, 2009. After
that, tickets can be hand-delivered between 5 and 7 p.m. to the
2009 Oregon Hunters Association Convention on May 16 in Grande
Ronde.

Several of the raffle hunts are offered through the Access and
Habitat program, including the Governor’s statewide combination
deer and elk hunt, statewide deer, southeast Oregon deer, central
Oregon deer, northeast Oregon deer, statewide elk, northeast Oregon
elk, central/southeast Oregon elk, and western Oregon elk.

Deer and elk raffle hunt winners will be able to hunt an
extended season from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30, 2009 across multiple
wildlife management units. Money raised from the deer and elk hunt
raffles goes to the Access and Habitat program, which provides
grants to fund wildlife habitat improvement and hunter access
projects on private land throughout Oregon. Ticket prices for deer
hunts are $4 for one ticket, $11 for six, $21 for 15, $51 for 40
and $101 for 100. Elk raffle tickets are $6 for one, $21 for six,
$41 for 15 and $101 for 40. Combination deer and elk hunt tickets
are $11 for one, $31 for six, $61 for 15 and $151 for 40.

The bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope and Rocky Mountain goat
raffles also offer extended hunting seasons to the winner. Proceeds
go to research and projects that benefit these species in Oregon.
These raffle tickets cost $11 for one, $51 for six, and $101 for
13.

Raffle winners may still purchase tags and hunt in general or
controlled seasons, in addition to hunting with their raffle
tag.
