Bull Elks, Bag Limits, and the Oregon Supreme Court


In case you were wondering (and you were, weren’t you), the Oregon Supreme Court on April 1, 2010, decided:

State of Oregon v. Benson L. Hogevoll (SC S057014)

From the Oregon Supreme Court, April 1, 2010, Media Release:

Today, the Oregon Supreme Court held that a hunter had “exceeded the bag limit for coast bull elk” when he took possession of the bodies of two elk, only one of which he had intentionally shot and killed. The Court rejected the hunter’s contention that, for purposes of the fish and wildlife rules, a “bag limit” is a limit on the number of animals a hunter kills…” (Link to full Media Release or full case.)
