But there are rules.
Deer and elk must be accidentally hit by a vehicle and not on purpose. You also need to complete an online permit within 24-hours, providing information like where and when the animal was salvaged.
The head and antlers of the animal must be surrendered to an ODFW office within 5 business days.
And you must remove the carcass from the road.
Here’s the full list of restrictions.
