This applies to anyone who is shooting either at the event or in pre-training.
If you are planning to shoot live birds, either at the Master National event or in Pre-Master National training, you should know that Oregon has some very strict Statues regarding licensing.
Oregon considers pen-raised pheasants and ducks that are used for preserve shooting or retriever training to be game because once they are released to be shot, they could escape and become part of the current wildlife population. As a result, all gunners, both in Pre-National training and at the Master National event will need to get the proper licenses and permits as outlined below.
- Gamebird Release Permit (no charge but group must have one in possession) https://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/dog_training/docs/Game%20Bird%20Release%20Permit%20for%20Hunting%20Dog%20and%20Raptor%20Training%20Final%202022.pdf
- Gamebird Validation Stamp ($44.50, good from July 2022 to July 2023)
- Non-resident Hunting License
- 3-day license is $31.50 for each 3-day period
- Full year license is $172.00
You may purchase a 3-day license for specifically designated dates and you may purchase multiple licenses at the same time. That means you can purchase three 3-day licenses to cover the entire event at your initial purchase. This is highly recommended for convenience and flexibility.
You may purchase the required permits/licenses online or at any of the locations listed below. These are all very convenient and within minutes of all hotels and venue locations in Roseburg.
