The Oregon Hunters Association was founded in Powell Butte in 1983, and has since grown to become the largest hunting organization in the state with over 10,500 members. With our growing membership and strong pool of volunteers, we are able to accomplish our mission of habitat and wildlife enhancement as well as increase our presence in the state legislature through our lobby efforts to preserve our hunting heritage. 

The Emerald Valley Chapter has taken on many local enhancement projects and in 2016 received national recognition for having the largest privately funded and volunteer organized habitat restoration project in the country. Currently, due to recent changes in regulations regarding volunteers on National Forest lands, we are limited in our ability to do our large scale projects. The Emerald Valley Chapter has adopted the Junction City Archery range and in conjunction with ODFW are expanding and maintaining the range. Volunteers from the chapter provide hours of labor and gather donations to assist in keeping this community asset viable. We are always open to new members and volunteers who share our goals and vision.
