Game Bird/Waterfowl

The diversity of landscapes and ecosystems on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest provide habitat for many game birds. In the sagebrush grasslands and streamside riparian areas you will find chuckar, Hungarian partridge, and California quail. In the forested areas you can hunt for turkeys, spruce grouse, and blue grouse.

Due to the variety of hunts offered in Oregon and Idaho, it is advisable to check on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, or the Idaho Fish and Game Department websites and review the big game regulations for the season, weapons and hunting unit you would like to hunt this season.
