At least one cow moose a year is shot mistakenly by a non-resident thinking it was a cow elk. Last year one starpped her to his car and brought it in to show the G&F.

They will have no sympathy and shouldn't. That can be a very expensive mistake.


Terry no moose for you! LOL

Fatty ;)

Phil,

you must take those stats with a grain of salt. Our DOW randomly picks hunters from out of the blue. They call people and ask if they had a "nice experience". It is not an accurate count whatsoever! We do not game check things here...

Area 45 tends to have higher elevations than most area in the state. The reason the 3rd and 4th seasons seem to be better, is simple. The elk are driven down from the high country and slaughtered as they concentrate. Look at the number of cows harvested...that's a dead give away. I would be more impressed with the number of bulls killed during the first three seasons (archery, muzzle, and second rifle). :D

The total number of bulls killed in area 44 has my attention. :yes: Statistically speaking though, area 45 has the best success rate of all those listed during the archery season. I'm sure the fine folks from this site can help throw that percentage to over 20! ;)

NO, NO,NO, Terry....

South and east slopes early, north side for the rest of the day. Look for cool damp spots during the day. The natural cooling effect of these areas attract elk. ELK DO NOT LIKE TO BE HOT. The moment the sun climbs into the sky, they hightail it for the shade. South and east slopes tend to be the place where all the food grows. But you will rarely catch them there during daylight hours. ;)

Terry that is all right. I am confused too. I am just getting North down pat and here Huck throws East and South. You mean I gotta learn them too. Aw man how am I gonna learn them before Elkatraz. I think there is another direction not mentioned man I better hit the books.

So far I have mastered the on/off switch on the GPS.

Sadly I am haivng second thoughts about hunting unit 55 for 2nd rifle bulls and may change my mind and just hunt unit 45. I still have not got to see 55 other than fotos tho I plan a ride up thru there in the next two weeks if something else bad dont happen. I have a pc of prop I want to look at in 55 but just cant seem to get up there and its only three hours.

Came home Thurs nite to a flooded stinky basement from the tornado/storm on Sun. My window wells filled with water which then rushed in soaking 40 yrds of carpet and padding which my homeowners wont cover. My great basement den looks like a garage floor now. Oh well hunting season is coming it's time for life stuff to mess up. It happens to me every year. Was going to the 'Elk Camp in the City' thing I posted today, but I am still struggling with dampness and mold something that is not healthy for me.

is it SeptOber yet? ...
