ODFW seeks hunter representative for statewide Access & Habitat Board


SALEM, Ore. (KTVZ) —Do you have a love of hunting and passion for wildlife conservation? If so, consider applying to serve as a Hunter Representative on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife's statewide Access & Habitat Board.

ODFW is accepting applications to fill the position through March 29, 2024. Individuals with knowledge and experience in hunting and wildlife conservation, and ideally with an understanding of forestry or agriculture, are encouraged to apply. Application forms are available at

Statewide Board members are appointed to four-year terms by the Fish and Wildlife Commission. They meet four times each year in various communities throughout the state to review project funding applications, hear public testimony and act as liaisons between the program and the public. Hunter Representatives review project proposals from a hunter's perspective and ensure hunters wants and concerns are addressed.

The A&H Board is made up of seven volunteers—three hunter representatives, three landowner representatives, and the Chair—who review and recommend wildlife habitat improvement and hunter access projects to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. The A&H Program is funded by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses and the sale of deer and elk raffle entries and auction tags.

See the A&H Program webpage and most recent A&H Biennium Report for additional information on the A&H program. Please contact Travis Schultz at (503) 947-6087 if you have any questions on the position.
