SALEM, Ore.—Want a chance to hunt big game for months and during the rut—or a rare chance to hunt for a bighorn sheep or Rocky Mountain goat? Big game raffle tickets are on sale until May 30 at 6 p.m. online at MyODFW’s licensing page and at license sales agents.

Raffle tags won can be used in addition to regular fall hunts—meaning hunters who win the tag can still hunt regular controlled or general big game seasons.  

Big game raffle hunt seasons run Aug. 1 – Nov. 30 and allow for hunting in an expanded area. Ticket prices vary from $4.50 to $11.50 per ticket, with discounts for buying a package of 6, 15 or 40 tickets. Pricing info is available at www.oregonrafflehunts.com 

With large events cancelled in Oregon due to the pandemic, the raffle drawing will happen via YouTube livestream at 6:30 p.m. on May 30 on ODFW’s YouTube page (https://youtube.com/ieodfw)

The following raffle hunts are available:

Governor’s Statewide Deer and Elk Combo

Proceeds from the bighorn sheep, pronghorn and Rocky Mountain goat tags fund research and management efforts for those species.
