As hunting seasons in Oregon wind down, The Outlook, Sandy Post and Estacada News are just ramping up the process of pulling together stories for the "Hunting 2014" special edition.
The supplement is inserted in the newspapers in mid-August, just in time to begin preparations for the fall hunting seasons. This supplement always contains stories about local hunters those who chase big game, waterfowl and upland game birds.
Last year's supplement featured Jerry Schilling of Gresham, who told us how Average Joe can shoot big bucks on private ground without the need to drain savings accounts. And we told the story of Sarah Feldhacker, 28, of Sandy, who brought down a record-book black bear with her custom-made bow.
As in previous years, we'd love to hear your success stories and your advice for successful hunting.
Did you or someone you know draw a big horn sheep tag in for the 2013 season? And more importantly, did you or that person fill the tag? Maybe you finally drew a tag for Eastern Oregon's high desert antelope.
Did someone from East Multnomah or Clackamas counties put a tag on a trophy bull elk?
Do you have tips on training your bird dog to retrieve waterfowl or point and flush pheasant or quail? Or do you have tried-and-true methods for waterfowl success on Sauvie Island?
Do you have an amazing story to tell about your hunting dog? Or do you have a story to tell about a long-time hunting buddy?
Have you ever had a death-defying moment during a hunting trip?
If you have a story to tell, it might just find a place on the pages of "Hunting 2014."
