Modified Preference Point System

(1) The Modified Preference Point System separates the tags for each controlled game mammal hunt into two groups:

(a) Seventy-five percent of the tags will be issued through the preference point system;

(b) The remaining 25 percent of the tags will be issued by the equal-probability computer drawing.

(2) Applicants shall accrue no more than one preference point per hunt number series per year. Valid applicants who did not receive controlled hunt tags for their first choice hunt number in the 100, 200, 400, 600, or 700 series hunts during the controlled hunt drawing shall receive one preference point applicable to subsequent controlled hunt drawings for the respective hunt number series, except as excluded in OAR 635-060-0008(4).

(3) A preference point will automatically accrue within each controlled hunt series when an applicant’s first choice is as follows:

(a) Hunt number 199: controlled buck deer;

(b) Hunt number 299: controlled elk;

(c) Hunt number 499: controlled pronghorn antelope;

(d) Hunt number 699: controlled antlerless deer;

(e) Hunt number 799: controlled black bear.

(4) Youth nine years of age or older are eligible to apply for automatic Preference Points as described in (3) provided they have a social security number, a Hunter/Angler ID number issued by ODFW, and purchase the appropriate (resident or nonresident) juvenile or adult hunting license.

(5) The Modified Preference Point System will group controlled hunt applicants by the number of preference points they have accrued for each hunt number series. Applicants with the highest number of preference points for each hunt number will be drawn first. Applicants having the next highest number of preference points per hunt number will be drawn next. This tag issuance process will continue through descending numbers of preference points until 75 percent of the tags authorized for the hunt have been issued, unless all qualified applicants with preference points have been issued tags prior to that point. Any tags remaining following the issuance of preference point tags will be issued through the equal-probability computer drawing. Applicants unsuccessful in the preference point tag issuance procedure and those applicants without preference points will be placed in the equal-probability computer drawing for the remaining tags.

(6) Applicants, except for those with a Pioneer Angling/Hunting License, successful in drawing their first choice hunt except numbers ending in 99 within a hunt number series shall have zero preference points when they next apply for a tag in that hunt number series. Successful Applicants with a Pioneer Angling/Hunting License shall have one preference point when they apply for a tag in that hunt number series.

(7) Beginning in 2008 applicants will not forfeit preference points accumulated for a hunt number series when they do not apply for that hunt number series for two consecutive years.

(8) Applicants who have their hunting license suspended or revoked by legal action will forfeit all preference points.

(9) Party applicant preference points shall be determined by totaling the preference points of all party members and then calculating the average of this total. Party preference points will be rounded up from x.51 (e.g. 3.51 to 4, 3.50 to 3) to the next whole number.

(10) Department records are final to determine accrued preference points for controlled hunt applicants.

(11) Each applicant’s preference point accrual record will be linked to his or her permanent identification number. Preference point applicants shall use the permanent identification number each time they apply for a controlled hunt tag. Failure to do so shall place the applicant in the equal-probability drawing for his or her hunt number series and preference points will not be accrued together.

(12) Applicants will receive no preference points when:

(a) Their application is not received by the appropriate application date;

(b) They request their controlled hunt application be withdrawn prior to the controlled hunt drawing;

(c) The controlled hunt application has been falsified.

(13) The Modified Preference Point System shall apply to 100, 200, 400, 600, and 700 series hunts.

(14) In 2005, 800 series points will be converted into 600 series points.

Procedures for Issuance and Enforcement of Parking Permits for Sauvie Island Wildlife Area

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife hereby adopts the following procedures relating to issuance and enforcement of parking permits for certain vehicles in Department Wildlife Area parking areas:

(1) Parking is permitted only in designated parking areas. A parking permit is required at all times for all fee parking areas.

(2) Fee parking areas are designated by the following signs:

(a) “Entering ODFW Wildlife Area — Parking Permit Required Beyond This Point”;

(b) “Parking allowed only in designated areas — ODFW Wildlife Area Parking Permit Required”.

(3) There are two separate permits: an annual permit and a daily permit.

(4) The fee for parking permits is $7.00 for permits issued on a daily basis or $22.00 for permits issued on an annual basis beginning each January 1. Beginning with 2012 licenses, any annual hunting license (including Combination and Sports Pac) will include a free annual parking permit.

(5) Permits are issued by selected local agents, Department offices that sell licenses and the Department’s Online License Sales website to a party upon payment and may be transferred from vehicle to vehicle.

(6) The permits must be visible from outside the vehicle and be displayed in the front or rear window of the vehicle.

(7) No parking permits will be required for those vehicles which are owned or operated by government agencies. Notwithstanding paragraph (5), the Department reserves the right to issue free administrative parking permits for private vehicles used by volunteers while participating in official Department-related activities. Parking permits will not be required for individuals arriving in private vehicles to address fire, health or safety emergencies.

(8)(a) A person who operates or parks a motor-propelled vehicle in violation of restrictions established and posted under OAR 635-008-0146 through 635-008-0151 commits an offense punishable as provided in ORS 496.992;

(b) The procedure for a peace officer (or other person authorized to enforce the wildlife laws) to follow upon finding a non government vehicle parked in a designated fee parking area without a permit shall consist of the issuance of a citation which shall be either delivered to the defendant or placed in a conspicuous place upon the vehicle in the violation.

Limitations on Species Captured and/or Held

(1) The following restrictions are placed on the number of raptors that may be captured in Oregon and/or held for falconry, including non-indigenous species:

(a) Apprentice Falconer — may possess only one raptor, and may obtain only one replacement during any capture season. The raptor shall be an American kestrel, or Red-tailed hawk, captured from the wild under the direct supervision and accompanied by the Apprentice’s sponsor. Apprentice falconers shall not take nestling raptors.

(b) General Falconer — may possess not more than two raptors, including captive bred raptors, but may obtain two replacement raptors from the wild in Oregon during a capture season. A General Falconer may capture and/or possess red-tailed hawk, American kestrel, Cooper’s hawk, sharp-shinned hawk, goshawk, prairie falcon, merlin or great horned owl. A General Falconer may obtain any number of captive bred raptors so long as the number of raptors held does not exceed two. A General falconer may possess any legally acquired non-indigenous raptor and legally acquired wild captured indigenous raptors.

(c) Master Falconer — may possess not more than three raptors and may obtain two replacement raptors from the wild in Oregon during a capture season. A Master Falconer may capture and/or possess great horned owl, red-tailed hawk, American kestrel, Cooper’s hawk, sharp-shinned hawk, goshawk, prairie falcon, merlin, gyrfalcon, peregrine falcon or golden eagle. A Master Falconer may obtain any number of captive bred raptors so long as the number of raptors held does not exceed three. A Master falconer may possess any legally acquired non-indigenous raptor and legally acquired wild captured indigenous raptors.

(2) Young raptors of the year shall be taken (unless otherwise noted e.g. by permit) on weekends only from the third Saturday in May through the third Sunday in October, and then daily through the last day of February of the following year. This period comprises the “capture season”.

(3) Any adult raptor inadvertently taken must be immediately released.

(4) Only the following raptor species and number of each may be taken in the state during the capture season unless otherwise specified:

(a) Red-tailed hawk, American kestrel, Cooper’s hawk, sharp-shinned hawk and great horned owl — unlimited and statewide except that owls may be taken as nestlings only.

Capture and Transportation of Raptors

A raptor capture permit is required prior to capturing or attempting to capture any raptor. A non-resident falconer from a state having a federally approved falconry program may obtain a capture permit for a red-tailed hawk, Cooper’s hawk, sharp-shinned hawk, prairie falcon, peregrine falcon, great horned owl, golden eagle or American kestrel only. All non-resident applications must include copies of current state and federal falconry permits. All applicants for golden eagle capture must include a copy of the federal authorization to take golden eagles. Only 20 non-resident capture permits will be issued in total each capture season. All non-resident capture permits, except for capture permits for peregrine falcons, will be issued on a first come first served basis.

(1) A nonrefundable application fee of $15.00 (plus a $2.00 license agent fee) will be charged for each capture permit allowing the capture of one raptor per permit.

(2) Except for take of peregrine falcons, the Department will issue capture permits in the order applications are received. The permit process will begin January 1st of each year, and applicants must hold a valid Oregon falconry license. The category of species shall be listed on the permit (e.g. “golden eagle”, “gyrfalcon”, “peregrine falcon”, or “other raptor”) and the falconer is authorized to take only one raptor from the category specified. A falconer may apply for a capture permit in more than one category. The falconer whose name appears on the permit must do the capturing except for peregrine falcon nestlings; the permit is not transferable.

(3) Capture permit applications for peregrine falcons may be submitted to the Department beginning January 1st and received no later than March 1st of each year. The Department will issue peregrine falcon capture permits by way of a lottery draw pursuant to OAR 635-055-0037.

 (4) If a permit holder violates any of the following rules, the Department will invalidate his or her peregrine capture permit. Taking of a peregrine falcon under a permit that is invalidated is a violation of these rules and is therefore an unlawful taking.

(a) The first four (4) resident peregrine capture permit applications drawn from the lottery who have indicated on their application form their wish to take a nestling peregrine falcon, will be authorized to take a nestling from a natural nest site, or take a post fledgling bird (pursuant to 635-055-0035 (5) (b)). Resident permit holders who are authorized to take a nestling from a natural site must notify the ODFW Falconry Program in writing the names and locations (by providing a clearly marked hardcopy map with sufficient labels and information to determine location; a Public Land Survey System which includes Township, Range, Section, Quarter Section, and Quarter; or a coordinate pair (latitude/longitude, or UTM/Meters) derived from a GPS unit indicating brand and model) of the nest sites they have selected for potential nestling take within two weeks of receiving their raptor capture permit from the department. Resident master falconer permit-holders may instead accept a nestling peregrine falcon taken by persons authorized by the department from man-made structures. This will only occur in circumstances where nestlings need to be removed from a nest during management or operational activities to nest-site structures. In the event that nestlings become available from structures, resident permits will be given preference over nonresidents in the sequence drawn in the lottery.

(b)The remaining two (2) successful resident applicants may accept a young peregrine falcon taken by persons authorized by the department from man-made structures. This will only occur in circumstances where nestlings need to be removed from a nest during management or operational activities to nest-site structures, or alternately the permit holder may take a post-fledgling bird (pursuant to 635-055-0035 (5) (b)).

(c) Of the number of permits available for issuance annually, the Department will make one such permit available to nonresidents. The nonresident permit holder may accept a nestling peregrine falcon taken by persons authorized by the department from man-made structures. This will only occur in circumstances where nestlings need to be removed from a nest during management or operational activities to nest-site structures; or alternately the permit holder may take a post-fledgling bird (pursuant to 635-055-0035 (5) (b)).

(5) Each permit will include conditions crafted by the Department on a case by case basis to address the particular proposal to capture peregrine falcons. Such conditions may include, but are not limited to, requirements to protect the safety of falconers and other humans during capture of peregrine falcons, and will specify where the permit-holder may capture peregrine falcons. The following general conditions apply to all peregrine falcon capture permits:

(a) Young falcons may be removed from their eyries (nests) from May 15th to June 30th daily and only when between 15 and 24 days of age. At least one nestling must be left in each eyrie prior to fledging.

(A) Prior to any nest entry, permit-holders must monitor each potential nest site to assess the presence and occupancy of nesting peregrine falcons and determine the presence and chronology of nestlings in the selected nest(s) (following established protocol U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 2003. Monitoring Plan for the American Peregrine Falcon, A species recovered under the Endangered Species Act. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Divisions of Endangered Species and Migratory Birds and State Programs, Pacific Region, Portland, OR. 53 pp.) The permit-holder must identify the site location (by providing a clearly marked map with sufficient labels and information to determine location; a Public Land Survey System which includes Township, Range, Section, Quarter Section, and Quarter; or a coordinate pair (latitude/longitude, or UTM/Meters) derived from a GPS unit indicating brand and model); the names and ownership of the property; the number of young in the nest and approximate ages of the nestlings on a form provided by the Department; and nest monitoring documentation collected to date at the specific nest site proposed for entry. This information must be reported in writing to the ODFW Falconry Program at least seven (7) days prior to attempting any nest entry.

(B) Permit-holders must contact in writing or by phone the appropriate ODFW biologist in the District or Watershed in which the nest(s) are located at least seven (7) days prior to proposed nest entry. Where nests are located on federal land, permit holders must also contact U.S. Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management biologists before entering nest sites. State and federal biologists may accompany permit-holders during take activities.

(C) Permittee must be present when the nestling is being removed from the eyrie.

(b) A post-fledgling peregrine falcon may be taken (trapped) by a permitted master falconer after the falcon flies from its nest through August 31st.

(A) Trapping attempts will be permitted only at locations approved by the Department.

(B) Permittee must be present at all times whenever a trap is in operation while attempting to take a post-fledgling peregrine falcon.

(C) A permit holder must notify the Department’s Falconry Program at the Salem headquarters office prior to the proposed dates of any peregrine falcon capture attempts. Proposed capture locations must be disclosed to the Department program staff prior to attempting to capture a post-fledgling peregrine falcon.

(c) Each falconer who takes a peregrine falcon from the wild must report the sex and precise capture location to the Department and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service within 5 days following capture (by providing a clearly marked map with sufficient labels and information to determine location; a Public Land Survey System which includes Township, Range, Section, Quarter Section, and Quarter; or a coordinate pair (latitude/longitude, or UTM/Meters) derived from a GPS unit indicating brand and model). If the falconer later determines that the sex of any peregrine falcon taken was reported incorrectly, then the falconer must submit a corrected report as soon as possible after discovering the error.

(d) Falconers must band each peregrine falcon taken with a band provided by the Department.

(e) After a captured falcon reaches 30 days of age, the falconer must pluck breast feathers from the falcon and submit them to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, along with a written record of the precise location of where the bird was taken from in the wild. The address for submission is U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of Migratory Bird Management, 4401 North Fairfax Drive, Mail Stop 4107, Arlington, Virginia 22203-1610.

(6) Upon taking the raptor authorized, the permittee shall immediately validate the permit by recording the date, species, sex, county, and capture method and signing his/her name in the space provided. At the time of capture, the permittee shall affix the permanent plastic band, issued with the permit, to one leg of the bird. Within five business days of capture, the permitee shall take the bird to a Department office to have the permit certified.

(7) Lost, raptors at hack, or captive bred raptors may be re-trapped at anytime without a capture permit. All other raptors captured shall be immediately released.

(8) Exportation of wild caught raptors — No raptor taken from the wild in Oregon shall be transferred to another person residing outside the state except those Oregon wild caught raptors held for six months or longer may be transferred to another person residing outside the state.

(9) An Oregon licensed falconer is allowed to retain legally captured raptors in their possession if they move from Oregon.

(10) Falconers are responsible for treatment and rehabilitation costs of raptors taken for falconry and injured during trapping efforts.
