    What are the approximate boundaries of the Rogue Unit? I've never hunted elk other than E. Oregon, Wyoming and Montana.

    I have several friends who hunt W. Oregon a lot and I was going to ask them for you. :thumbup:

    They hunt from Butte Falls E. along Butte Falls-Prospect Hwy and forest service side roads.

    Butte Falls to Rancheria Road and it's side roads. Also from there out 35-3E-7.

    Butte Falls - Fish Lake Road to 140 and side roads.

    Union Creek to Woodruff Meadows and surrounds.

    E. and S. Slopes (Edit: I meant W. and S. slopes) of Huckleberry Mountain and surrounding out of Union Cr. including anything between Prospect and Union Cr.

    No place known to be free of snow that time of year but those are lower (relatively) and elk wintering grounds.

    They said the folks at the Butte Falls and Prospect Ranger Stations would actually tell you where elk had been spotted.

    Those can all be day trips.

    HTH :)

    Do you have a rifle w/good scope for your boy to use? I could lend you a good .270 Win Ruger bolt w/Leopold 2X7 and good butt pad. .270 Win is plenty for Roosevelt Elk and it won't knock him on his azz. :thumbup:

    Great. I didn't know how big the "boy" was. I think they can start at 12?
