The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) will resume road restrictions this fall in the western part of the Tillamook State Forest to improve deer and elk escapement during hunting season.  The period will be September 1 through November 30, 2011.
 
Some roads will be closed to motorized use during general archery and rifle hunting seasons in September, October and November. Selected roads in the Trask, Wilson and Nehalem River areas will be gated and signed. Controlled access during those three months is designed to reduce hunting pressure in these areas. 

Hunters and other recreational users are welcome to access the gated areas by foot, mountain bike, horse or other non-motorized means.
 
ODF is partnering with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) and the Tillamook Chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association (OHA) in this program. 
 
Motorized access by ODF staff or contractors working in those areas may occur on occasion. Maps of the road management areas are available at the Tillamook ODF office located at 5005 Third Street, Tillamook and at the Tillamook District’s Web site at:  http://oregon.gov/ODF/FIELD/TILLAMOOK/aboutTillamook.shtml. Once at this link go to the “Recreation” section for the information.  
 
If you have questions about the road management program, contact Gary Baker at the Tillamook ODF office, 503-815-7016, or Herman Biederbeck at the Tillamook ODFW office, 503-842-2741.
