What You Need to Know About Shooting Birds In Oregon

If you are planning to shoot live birds, either at the Master National event or in Pre-Master National training, you should know that Oregon has some very strict Statues regarding licensing.

Oregon considers pen-raised pheasants and ducks that are used for preserve shooting or retriever training to be game because once they are released to be shot, they could escape and become part of the current wildlife population.  As a result, all gunners, both in Pre-National training and at the Master National event will need to get the proper licenses and permits as outlined below.

You will need to start at the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife at   https://myodfw.com/     Here you can purchase a  license online ahead of time as well as the gamebird release permit you will need (no charge).  It will explain to you how to mail or fax the form to the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife.

Usually only one person in a training group needs a game release permit, but any/all gunners need to have proper licensing per ODFW statutes with a validation for duck (migratory stamp not necessary) and Upland. A validation is printed on the license for migratory birds (duck) and upland. Having a Oregon State stamp is not necessary.

An annual hunting license can be purchased for $167.00 covering the pre-national training and the event.

Also, in many locations throughout Oregon you can purchase a license at small general stores and convenience markets as there is not a Big 5, Walmart, ODFW location in every town/city.

Here are the links for those who plan to conduct Pre-National training in Oregon.  you need this information if you want to shoot birds during training.

https://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/dog_training/index.asp

Gamebird release permit, no charge but you need to have one in possession:

Required Licenses/Permits 

  • Gamebird Release Permit (no charge but group must have one in possession) https://bit.ly/2LChuDj
  • Gamebird Validation  ($43.00, good from July 2018 to July 2019)
  • Non-resident Hunting License
    • 3-day license is $31.50 for each 3-day period
    • Full year license is $167.00

You may purchase a 3-day license for specifically designated dates and you may purchase multiple licenses at the same time.  That means you can purchase three 3-day licenses to cover the entire event at your initial purchase.  This is highly recommended for convenience and flexibility.

Master National Annual Meeting Ballots

Attention: Master National Retriever Clubs

MNRC Secretary Elaine Goodner has emailed Ballots to all member clubs.  Some clubs will receive two ballots because there are two names in the data base, but each club has only ONE vote.

Ballots may be returned to Elaine via email, U.S. Postal Service (see address below) or hand delivered before the annual meeting in Roseburg, Oregon on Friday, October 19, 2018.

If U.S. Postal is opted, the ballot must reach Elaine at her Texas address by October 1st. Dues must be current for the club vote to count. We hope to see 100% return of ballots.  Do not hesitate to contact Elaine with questions or concerns.

Important Message: By-Laws Change

Second By-Laws Change:

Below is a second By-Laws change that will be on the ballot this year. Master Amateur Retriever Club (MARC) is a member club of Master National Retriever Club (MNRC).

The Board of Directors recommends MNRC recognize that a qualification at MARC be counted as two qualifications.

  1.   MARC is running the same format (6 series) as the Master National.
  2.   MARC has demonstrated excellent judge’s selection.
  3.   Passing a six series test is much harder than a double header weekend test.
  4.   By recognizing MARC with two qualifications, it would take pressure off entries for weekend tests.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to your Region’s Director and V.P. or Kevin Bunnell, President MNRC kpbunl@douglasfast.net.

Respectfully,
Elaine Goodner, MNRC Sec.

MNRC By-Laws

SECTION 3.

Number of Contestants, Eligibility and Entry Fees
(a) Contestants shall be limited to the following:
(1) Qualifying dogs of the previous year’s Master National Hunting Retriever Test shall receive credit for two qualifying scores.
(2) All contestants shall be required to obtain qualifying scores in a minimum of six (6) Master Hunting tests conducted by member clubs. Contestants who enter exclusively in Alaska must obtain qualifying scores in a minimum of four Master tests by member clubs and have an MH title.
(3) Dogs, domiciled in Canada, running exclusively in CKC Master Hunt Test events, that passed the most recent CKC Canadian Master National Hunt Test prior to the July 31st MNRC qualifying end date.
(4) Dogs having passed three prior MNRC annual events are exempt from the requirements of Paragraphs (2) & (3) of this section and are qualified for all future MNRC annual events

(5) Qualifying dogs of the current year’s Master Amateur Retriever Club (MARC) Hunting Retriever Test shall receive credit for two qualifying scores towards the current year’s Master National Retriever Club (MNRC) Hunting Retriever Test, provided that eligibility to enter the current year’s MARC event came from MNRC member Clubs during the MNRC qualifying period for the MNRC current year.
