For every thing there is a season. The Biblical saying certainly applies to hunting in the Pacific Northwest, where each state has complex tables of dates, species, and zones to dictate when and how hunting can be done.

Oregon also has year-round hunting available for over a dozen species, listed below. This includes unprotected mammals, fur-bearing mammals, and a few larger animals.
