Planning a trip

Post by oxberger on Wed May 09, 2012 9:43 am

I will get the ball rolling ...

Looking for the hows, whens , whats, wheres (if you want) for planning an elk hunt.

Looking for information on whether to apply for points or otc, which states have the best public access, supplies, budget plans, packing meat, getting it home. Basically getting a dialog for getting a game plan so as little time is wasted as possible

plan to go to the unit you draw and do a scout trip and preferably a spring gobbler trip too as prep for your elk hunt. Pick one good solid hunting partner you can trust. Decide now what you will be happy with - most elk harvested by bowhunters do not have symetrical 6 points a side racks. Decide what you will be happy with in terms of when and where would you shoot a cow elk. Physical conditioning - can you walk 8 miles in mountains with a 25# pack without getting blown out? Can you and your buddy carry 70# packs a few miles - a couple a times in a row? How successful are you as a resident at home on deer - and how do you translate this level of woodsmanship to your expectations of filling an elk tag?
Have you read Dwight Schuh's books on high country mule deer and bugling for elk? More later

gathering points or OTC tags: Do both - we look at Elk as a 5 year plan - knowing going in we will hunt - then with a preference towards a particular state and unit.
