I draw unit 42 elk in Idaho. That's like drawing mt. Emily in Oregon but better.
I see that is in the far south-west corner of the state. No roads, no towns, just a lot of game feeling all safe.
How are you planning on getting in? All by foot, or on a quad, or a horse? What's your plan?
What gun/caliber are you planning on taking (or buying and building up before the hunt)?
We hunt that area on a private ranch. Last year we shot a 175 mule deer. Giant ranch . Drive right to camp. It's the least access largest ranch in the lower 48.
I need to limit the info to that. For privacy. Hate saying that.
Area is to big for my horses so it's always quads there.
Gun? I don't know. Probably my .300 short mag.
I had a zeiss scope on my short mag, but didn't lik it. Cabelas gave me credit back, and I got the VX-6. Also picked up a sig rang finder. I like both products.
Not a monster, but he scored 335-340.
One HELL of a pack out.
450 yards moving. 1 shot through the heart.
.300 wsm. Browning xbolt. Leupold VX-6 with cds.
Great shot, congratulations on the elk.
Jesus.....that elk is a beaut!
Thanks. I did the best I could. but that scope did the most.
