CENTRAL POINT, Ore.—The Southwest Region Council of the Access and Habitat program will host a public meeting Nov. 30 at 3:30 p.m. to discuss a possible new Travel Management Area to be known as the Coos Mountain TMA within the Tioga Wildlife Management unit.
The meeting will be held at
ODFW’s Central Point office,
1495 East Gregory Road.
Attend in person or call
1-877-336-1831 and enter participant code 804246.
Commercial timberland ownership in the area has shifted in recent years. The new TMA would provide “Welcome to Hunt” access on 63,000 acres so that hunters would have access to more private and public land in the area. TMAs typically involve some motor vehicle restrictions and help regulate access so private landowners are more willing to open their property to hunters.
The A and H program funds projects that provide hunter access and/or improve wildlife habitat on private land in Oregon. It’s funded by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses and big game auction and raffle tag sales.
For more information, please contact Jade Keehn, ODFW’s A and H SW Regional Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, (541) 826-8774 x232.

Subject: Fw: Nov. 30 meeting to discuss new Coos Mtn TMA
I talked with you on the phone today. Afterward I called Dominic Rocco the biologist in Charleston and he explained some of the plan, but he did not have a map of the area.
Would you have a map of the Coos Mtn TMA? If you can, please send any links or info relating to this project?
Here is the proposed project area map. Let me know if I can help to track down any additional project information. I believe that the proposal will be publicized if it’s accepted after the first round of review. Of course, the review meeting is public and you’re welcome to attend in person, or by phone. If you have any specific concerns that you want documented, I’m happy to record them to share with the public review council.
This project would be funded through the A&H program; you can find more information about the review process and the project goals here: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/lands/AH/index.asp
