Non-Member Upland Game Bird

& Waterfowl Hunting Regulations

for the

Umatilla Indian Reservation

INTRODUCTION 

The following is a summary of regulations that apply to persons who are not members of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation and who wish to hunt within the boundaries of the Umatilla Indian Reservation:

  1. Any person who hunts on the lands or in the waters within the boundaries of the Umatilla Indian Reservation shall carry on his/her person at all times, a permit issued to them by the Confederated Tribes which specifically authorizes such activity. Possession of any birds or parts thereof by persons who do not have a valid tribal permit shall be prima facie evidence that the birds were unlawfully taken;
  2. All persons who are not enrolled members of the Confederated Tribes who engage in hunting on reservation lands without a Tribal Permit are subject to federal criminal prosecution pursuant to 18 U.S.C. Section 1165;
  3. Tribal permits are not transferable to any other person. Any attempt to transfer a Tribal Permit renders that permit null and void;
  4. In addition to possessing a Tribal Permit, any person who hunts within the boundaries of the Umatilla Indian Reservation must comply with the State of Oregon general hunting regulations regarding gear, harvest methods, harvest hours and general restrictions except where closed herein.

Ask first before hunting lands within the Umatilla Indian Reservation!

Landowners may file trespass charges against individuals hunting on their land without permission.  All hunters are required to obey the laws and respect the rights and property of others.
