Oregon Antelope Hunting 2024

Available Oregon Antelope Hunts --- Search HF Aventures

Oregon has the potential to produce a Boone and Crockett buck on nearly every hunt. That did not happen with the 2023 season. Most hunters struggled to find 75" bucks on most units. The horn growth was terrible throughout the antelope country in Oregon. On a good horn growth year, you will see some giants harvested. Almost every year, Oregon will produce a couple 85" bucks. The last three years have not been great for horn growth, and a few units have even cut tags as some populations have slipped due to drought. Oregon actually closed the South Wagontire unit as they struggled to find any antelope on the aerial flights.

The majority of the better antelope units are in the southeastern corner of the state. The top units include Beatys Butte, Juniper, Hart Mtn, Whitehorse, and Warner. All of these units have good access to public land, but the rifle hunts take 24-27+ points to draw. The biggest problem for nonresidents who want to hunt Oregon is that they only issue up to 3% of tags to non-residents. In the antelope table, you can see that there will be just over 30 total nonresident antelope tags issued in the units we covered.

Most of the antelope hunts are located on public land and have great road access. Some units do have large private agricultural fields that can be frustrating for hunters as the antelope typically do not want to leave them. Most of the antelope units are large desert areas that can be miles from the nearest town. The country in Southeast Oregon is big with not a lot of towns or services available. Make sure you are prepared with extra fuel and a good spare tire or two before heading out on your hunt.

Consult with Hunters Who Have Hunted in Your Unit, Join Now!

If you are already applying in Oregon, you can add an antelope application for only $8. If you do not want to wait years to draw a tag, you may want to go after a premium tag as those odds are completely random. The premium application is $8. If you love hunting antelope, you may as well apply for both the premium and regular tags. If you are sitting on a lot of antelope points and need some advice on what to do or what outfitter to hunt with, give us a call as we have spent time chasing antelope in the desert country of Oregon.
