Below is a link for a petition supporting legalization of lighted nocks for archery hunting in Oregon. The petition is being circulated by John Stone, owner of The Archery Hut in Lebanon, Oregon. If you support legalization of lighted nocks for archery hunting, please feel free to print off some copies of the petition and get as many signatures from bow hunters as you can.
After completion, the form should be returned to:
The Archery Hut
190 Crowfoot Road
Lebanon, OR 97355
If you have an opportunity to compile signatures on the petition prior to May 5th, please put the completed petitions in the mail to John so he can present them at the Salem big game public meeting on May 12th. Otherwise, just keep on gathering signatures on the petition until September 15th and place them in the mail to John for the October ODFW Commission meeting. It is likely that any final decision will be made at this meeting.

ODF&W Big Game Meeting Schedule (Link)
ODFW big game public meeting schedule for 2015 has been released. We hope that you will attend at least meeting in your area and encourage other friends and Oregon bow hunters in your community to do likewise. The ODFW regulatory proposals likely won't be available until shortly before the first meeting. We believe that legalization of lighted nocks for bow hunting in Oregon will be one of the issues presented at the public meetings this year. The Pope & Young Club is now accepting game taken while using lighted nocks for their record book. The Oregon Hunters Association (OHA) will be adding their support this year. OBH views this to be a good opportunity for getting lighted nocks legalized. If this is something you can support, your attendance and comments at ODFW's public meetings could make all the difference!
Also, at our recent 2015 OBH Convention, three (3) Emergency Proposals were adopted:
If you support these proposals, please make your opinions know in an ODFW big game public meeting.

OBH has been selected by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife to host the new archery range at E. E. Wilson Wildlife Area located North of Corvallis. We need volunteers to help out at the range as hosts. Please click this link for more detailed information regarding dates, times and host schedule. At this time March and April are filled, we need more volunteers beginning in May.
Online registration is now available!
Beginning this year you may pre-pay your tournament fee online. This will drastically reduce your check-in time. If you pre-pay you must still check-in one hour before the tournament begins.
Also this is a reminder to make sure that your membership is current before arriving at the check-in desk. You may renew or apply and pay for a membership online! In order to avoid delays we strongly encourage you to have your membership current before arriving.
Congratulations to all Division & Class winners! We thank everyone that participated in this first of three State Tournaments. Results are posted at the Tournament Results Link.
Registration for the State Field will open sometime next week.
Ron Miller makes it 3 years in a row!
