Rouge River area

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

This morning I was talking to a Timber cruiser while hunting, he said there is good hunting down off the Rogue river area in the old mining claim area. He said it was all public land and not hunted too much. would any of you know where this area is????

It depends are you talking the city of Rogue River area-lots of private area. or along the wild and scenic area of the Rogue river below Grants pass. This is very steep terrian that is straight up and down. Very few roads in this area. Also its loaded with bear since you can not shoot one w/in a half mile of the river(air miles). please contact me if you have more questions. Southern oregon deer pops have gone down quite a bit in the last 15 yrs- to many predators and the Andro virus has taken its toll- plus lots of poaching

we are looking to go east of Medford up to and round Crater Lake area. I'm building a rifle especially for southern Oregon hunting a 280 Ackley Improved on a 98 Mauser action.

When the title said "Rouge River" I thought you were hunting around the Ford factory, in Dearborn, Michigan......

Good for a morning chuckle.

They 280 Ackley should be a great rifle for That area. Also a 22 250 and a 243 6mm and a 7mm08 as well as the often touted 270 does it all and will even open a cold one if your a good enough shot.

I grew up in SO OR Ran the wild area of the Canyon my first time by myself when I was 8yrs old. I had a 14ft drift boat and used to be tail end charlie for the trips my Dad and some others would book through the river. I lived in GP Medford Union Creek Butte Falls White City Ashland Jacksonville Galice. Merlin Applegate Wilderville Cave Junction Somac Wolf Creek Agness. 30 plus years there.

I'm new to this forum, but live in the area. This is an old post, but may help someone out. A disproportionate number of recod-book Blacktails have come out of Jackson County, so the potential for a very good deer exists. I'd focus my efforts in the Applegate or Evans Creek unit. The Chetco Unit is also very good. It was the location of the Bisucuit Fire a few years ago that burned 500,000 acres. Fires can be very good for Deer populations because they create new brouse that old-growth forest lack.

It wouldn't be practical to hunt the Rogue River corridor west of Grants Pass because the only access is by boat or raft, and it has some serious white water to navigate. The biggest Blacktail I ever saw, however was on a 3-day trip through the canyon.

We have lots of Deer, and if I were going to focus on a record-book type Buck it would be in this area
