Reedsport is a great base camp for hunters of elk, deer, bear, and game birds. The Tahkenitch National Forest as well as plenty of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land means that pheasant, quail, deer, and elk have found a home where they have become abundant and plentiful. Hunting helps to control populations and when done responsibly is a great addition to the outdoor enjoyment of area residents. Be sure to have your license and know the regulations for your type of game and time of the year. You can find more about this at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
