I killed my first bull in 1966. My next elk will be #35. With mostly just me eating them, I'm on the "every other year plan."

Been of age to hunt since 1991, have killed 3 via archery and 7-8 via rifle. I'll catch up to you old farts soon enough.

ravenr:

I went on my first elk hunt in 1978 and have killed 33 elk since then. But I only hunt elk in Colorado.

You must hunt in several states each year to have accumulated 65 kills since 1976.

Since 1982, have not really kept count since then, buts its got to be at least 12, maybe 15 (mostly cows, a few bulls, nothing over 300", and all public land DIY hunts. I'm a meat hunter mostly but I do like to hold bone every now and then. I can't imagine anything that tastes better than a big fat September cow!

I started in 1966 I think +or-. I have killed quite few, but some one here said it was bragging to say how many. So I will just say it's over 40. I hunted NM for 8 years or so,CO since 74 and have been to ALberta once.

Elk is one of many reasons I live in Montana. I have been hunting them since I was old enough to hunt. To date, somewhere near 60, again, living in Montana I have been able to shoot 2 a year for some time now. From nicest to worsest...

Started hunting elk at age 12 in 1980:



Shot this AZ bull this November, my 49th elk:



Never have considered myself much of an elk hunter, but I've always had pretty good luck while hunting them.

Killed my first elk in 1996, I've killed a total of 10 elk, 8 bulls and 2 cows, all in Northwest Colorado (units 12 and 13). All the bulls were raghorns,I did kill one decent 5x5.
