State Parks accepting public comments on park resource rules clarifying hunting boundaries.

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is accepting written comments on the proposal to amend OAR 736-010-0055 to update park resource rules to clarify hunting boundaries.

Hunting is permitted in several state parks within Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) rules and regulations. Access to hunt on OPRD lands is provided in state parks where public safety is low risk and the activities meet agency wildlife goals.

The current rule specifies each area within a park that is open to hunting. For the Willamette River Greenway, some of those properties have changed management or are inaccurately described.

The proposed rule change will clarify hunting boundaries within state parks by referring to an OPRD hunting map that will be located on the agency website. The rule will direct people to adhere to ODFW rules and regulations when hunting on park properties.

Clarifying the hunting boundaries within this rule will help protect visitors and hunters alike. A hunting map will be created and made available on the agency website for hunters to refer to in identifying hunting boundaries at each park where hunting is available per this rule.

The Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) proposed for revision include:
