White River Elk Tag
« on: August 21, 2017, 09:24:01 PM »
Okay so my two brothers, my dad and myself put in for this hunt as it was one that all 4 of us could go together and put in for. We drew it and I have been up in the hunt 4 times now. Once with dad and oldest brother and the other three times with my grandson. We have hiked our butts off and have seen elk but are still looking for that a good starting point. We are not all looking for wall hangers but will put in the work to get our elk. With that said any and all suggestions, hints or out right honey holes :chuckle:. I know about the other hunting that goes on in the unit so that is what it is. Thanks to any and all and good luck this season. BTW this is a modern tag if it matters. Dad is 75 and only has use of one arm so no bows for him.

if you've seen elk it seems your way ahead of the curve. They do have a herd mentality.  :twocents:

You're looking in the right places. I didn't see a ton of elk in there last year either but they are there.

Yes have had to chain all four to get out, if the snow flies a snowmobile is the way to go, but it is very rugged country.

Thanks for all the help guys and the PM's. I truly appreciate it. Couple of questions for everyone 1. is the Hancock pass worth the money? 2. Where would be the best place to park a coach up there for 2 weeks or so that it wouldn't be messed with much. I know there is always a chance but general area.

Again thanks for all the help so far and good luck hunting to all.

If your Dad is 75, Id suggest the Hancock pass to hunt north of Mt.RNP & west of Hwy 410. 
Take up your bow, a quiver full of arrows, head out to the country and hunt some wild game.  GEN 27:3
