We have both blacktail and mule deer, as well as antelope. We also have two types of elk, and black bears. There's also quite a variety of fowl, and pretty much whatever type of fish you are interested in.Blacktail deer are the main deer in Oregon. I don't think that they have many whitetails. They have mule deer, too, but I think that those are mainly in the eastern part of the state. I think that they also have antelope in the eastern part of Oregon, which is a long ways from Eugene, but looks more like western Nebraska. Oregon folks, is this accurate? For blacktail deer, the style of hunting that is always emphasized in the outdoor magazines is silent, stealthy stalking, which would be fun, but it's not usually how things are done around here. I would assume that drawing bear, elk, sheep, or goat tags is not a sure thing, to put it mildly.
The western portion of the state (Portland, Salem, Eugene) is where most of the people are, and most of the opposition to hunting/shooting. Get out of those areas and there is a longstanding support of hunting, fishing, and pretty much all other outdoors activities.
