Trends in fee hunting in Oregon are examined, with particular emphasis on waterfowl in the western part of the state. Farmers with potential or existing waterfowl habitat in western Oregon were surveyed about their views on managing their lands for waterfowl. As incentives to such practices, they listed the financial returns from leasing access to hunting, aesthetic appreciation of waterfowl, and personal enjoyment from waterfowl hunting. As deterrents, they listed negative attitudes toward hunters and concerns over lawsuits by hunters. They also identified damage to crops by waterfowl as a source of friction between wildlife agencies and landowners.
