Colorado has a 20% success rate for elk. Doesn't sound that easy to me great white hunter.

I don't remember saying it was hard either? You want to point me to that post?


Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you a hunting license and that's pretty close.

I'm not surprised by the success rate, 80% of hunters are too damn lazy to kill anything.

Point you to a post? You are constantly making elk out to be some kind of critter akin to a unicorn.

I'm sure 80% of the elk hunters would agree with that, but I still don't remember saying elk hunting is hard.

The only hard part for me is getting up the mountains at my age. Elk has nothing to do with that.

I might have said still hunting can be harder than spot and stalk, or taking long shots, but again. It has nothing to do with elk.

I think you've misunderstood what i've said.

Here's my addition for elk in vehicles.. not whole though, head, front shoulder and loins.. Lee Metcalf Wilderness, Monument area, '94. I was driving US 191 so much that year I bought an old beater Civic for $200. Sold it for $250 in the Crystal Bar that winter.

Couple years later I was showing photos of an elk I arrowed to a friend that worked in the old Bob Wards on main. I was also telling him how excited I was that my Dad had drawn a late season Gardiner bull elk permit that year. A short, bearded, round featured dude bellied his way into the conversation had a fit about how unethical it was to shoot a bull on such a permit, and that me showing my elk photos.. was "all that's bad in hunting these days." This same guy posts pictures all over this forum these days, with plenty of elk taken on ichabod crane's ranch, which would be about as challenging to hunt as the heart of the park during September. Always wonder if that guy's bipolar or schizophrenic.

Rosco, I hate to confuse you with facts but in most states the average success rate for an elk hunter, is an elk every 6 or 7 years. If you have access to private land, live in an area where elk are prevelant or where you can watch and pattern them all year long, you have a great advantage. Most of us don't. I traveled a total of 3400 miles this year, elk hunting, in 4 states. Sure I kill elk but I have the time and a fairly high skill set (this was my 54th season) which helps me be successful. Elk can be easy to kill but for most on "fair chase", do it your self hunts, they can be a challenge. While you may be a skilled hunter your post shows that you are "wet behind the ears" when dealing with people on a public forum.

You asked me earlier about Whitetails near elgin. Our cow hunt was prior to any Whitetails moving into that country. I am sure they are their now, its good country for them. I now hunt over in the Mt Emily unit. Steep and ugly, like you, most of my elk have come out on my back, but there have been a few lucky ones (for me).

Agreed.

Whatever guys. Think what you want.

I know the truth, and so do those who know me.

Up here moose hunters that go with this tool use vegetable oil for bar oil and that saw is only used for meat. Now days folks are moving to battery powered reciprecating saws. Some carry two or three batteries or use a charger and inverter powered off their ATV or genny.

If I get a Delta bison tag I'll be winching into a trailer, so this is a helpful thread.

Speakin' of which, I would have gladly accepted the challenge on this guy last Sept. I think even I could have sealed the deal at the south end of Hayden Valley. grin

Funny thing, I think I was the only one who saw the bull across the river as everybody else was mesmerized by this ky-o-tee.

It's the only way to go, especially with large animals and if you know you have to pack them anyway. Just don't forget to take out the tenderloins!!

+1. I've thrown a couple small TX whitetails in the back of a Ford Escort, but that's classic! grin

In Yellowstone those ky-o-tees are called wolves 50% of the time.
