The Sauvie Island Duck Club (SIDC) is a private waterfowl hunting club located approximately 10 miles northwest of Portland, OR along U.S. Route 30. Sauvie Island is 26,000 acres (105 km2), making it the largest island along the Columbia River and home to premier Oregon waterfowling. The island is bordered by the Columbia River to the east, the Multnomah Channel to the west and the Willamette River to the south and is mostly farmland and wildlife refuge.
Duck club members will have access to several acres of private hunting area. Blinds are located in three main areas (and three smaller areas) within the property to help maximize hunting potential and minimize member contact.
Sauvie Island Duck Club is located on a great flyway and is a mallard haven!
The following three types of memberships are available: Day, Week, and Season at a cost of $200, $750, and $2,000 respectively. Season members are allowed to bring guests, but please check with Ron beforehand (see the rules). Parking is available on club grounds. Future plans include the construction of a small lodge to provide all members and guests with lockers and bathroom facilities.
The western Oregon waterfowl season typically runs from Oct-Jan. It is important to check the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) Game Bird Regulations for the specific dates, regulations and fees at http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/waterfowl/. At a minimum, hunters will need a valid Oregon hunting license including a waterfowl validation and a federal waterfowl stamp. The ODFW offers both mail and online licensing and the 2009-2010 waterfowl season costs are $43.50 for Oregon residents and $100.50 for nonresidents.
Goose hunting in northwest Oregon requires the successful completion of coursework and testing. Information, including study materials and examination registration, is also available online at the ODFW website at http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/waterfowl/goose-permits/
