Sauvie Island To Open To Waterfowl Hunters

Waterfowl hunters will soon have a new location at their disposal. The former duck hunting club, Flight's End on Sauvie Island opens to hunting January 1st

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife acquired the property in September through the Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program. The agreement guarantees more than $117 million for fish and wildlife habitat conservation and restoration, protecting a minimum of 16,880 acres of important native habitats.

Three groups of hunters with a maximum size of four will allowed hunting at one time. The area has no designated shooting areas or blinds. The property is bordered by the Multnomah Channel to the west, which is a priority habitat for restoration for Chinook and Coho salmon and Steelhead. Only those with a valid hunting permit may enter Flight's end until April 14.
