Bow Hunting At Its Best !
This is outrageous elk hunting, the area is in Oregon and the Coastal Range. It is almost eerie, all the trees are covered in vines, ferns and moss is covering everything. Its like being in a rain forest.
Roosevelt elk are found only in the wet, coastal ranges of the Pacific Northwest, a limited range that makes them little known to outsiders. They also are found in Northern California, Oregon, Washington and Vancouver Island. These challenging rain forest environments include limited visibility and often non-stop rain. Then enters the fog.
To hunt a Roosevelt elk successfully calling is the number one choice for most hunters. Plus a whole lot of patience.
Roosevelt elk have smaller antlers then the Rocky Mountain elk do but they are a much larger bodied animal and are darker in color. Weighing in sometimes between 900 to 1000 pounds. That’s a lot of meat and a lot of hard work to get the meat back to be looked after. But I’d say in the end, worth every step and minute of hard work. Your freezer will be more then full.
Rocky Mountain elk range from New Mexico to North Central British Columbia. The average weight for these elk are – female’s 500 pounds and adult males are around 700 pounds . Their antlers are larger and usually top the record books . So you can see there is quite the difference.
I would say hunting the Roosevelt elk just might be one of the toughest trophies to acquire . The steep jungle terrain, the secretive nature of the animal the physical and mental stamina that it would take to have success. What a great feeling to succeed it must be…
Outrageous hunt you got to see this…
