ROOSEVELT ELK HUNTS
This is a very good hunt during the rut with bugling bulls. We'll have some really good out of the way places to hunt for these elk. I prefer to get up to higher ground and spend my time glassing; then get as close as possible once we've located the elk. When we get to within 100 yards or less we will get set up and call them in. This is mostly brushy country with a lot of old roads to sneak in on. If the elk fade into the cover, we can then attempt to call them blindly, listen for an answer, then sneak in closer to get a shot. A person can get quite the adrenalin rush from this hunt. We usually look for bulls in the 40 inches wide X 40 inches long range. Roosevelt antlers are heavier and their body weight is bigger as well.
Our rifle hunts take place on private property in South Western Oregon in the month of November. They operate on a spot and stalk method, with similar tactics as our archery hunts. We have high success rates on this hunt and have taken Roosevelt bulls over 350 inches.
