I struck out also.. I've had once every year since 2007 when they started the permit process. I spend literally every weekend up there. What irks me is the guys I hunt with all got one and they only go up during hunting season.Molalla Permit area. Good luck on the other areas. I hold no good feelings toward them.
Same amount of permits but demand has skyrocketed the last 2 or 3 years. A few years ago they wouldnt even sell out. Now they are gone in seconds!Did they reduce the number of permits for that area? I've always been able to get one for LV-StH when I have tried, but that has meant being logged on and ready to go the minute it opens up. Missed last year because we were out of town.
How much are the leases?There's been a couple leases I've eye-balled but they never seem to come up available. Otherwise I've never hunted their properties. It's interesting to me that folks are willing to give up hunting all together because a private company charges fees to hunt their lands. There is a lot of public land in Oregon.
