Just found this site, Its sweet... and also going to be the cause of my financial ruin! Im getting into backpack hunting pretty hot and heavy so gearing up is on my to do list. Anyway, thanks for all the great info!
Ah come on, I was raised in NE.Oregon (Wallowa Valley), we don't have it so bad.
Saltwater fishing is just an hour away, mountains on all sides.
The Willamette Valley and Columbia Rvr is a Waterfowl Mecca.
Great bass & walleye fishing, sturgeon, salmon, steelhead, halibut, Tuna!
Great bear & cougar hunting, yeah I'll admit our deer & elk pops are hurting.
But all in all, we got it pretty good.
