Great late season antlerless hunt
« on: January 03, 2017, 01:17:23 AM »


With the help of some great people, and the cooperation of WDFW, I sure enjoyed a late-season cow elk hunt in the Malaga unit last week. The hunt was harder than I anticipated. Spent several days finding where the elk were not...

Finally located a herd on private property, and with permission, was able to hunt them. A 15 year old young man with us also had the same tag, and took his elk with a long shot from a .300 Weatherby. I followed up an hour or so later and took one with my .30-06 rifle. It was a great day. Been a long time since we've had elk steaks in my home. Really looking forward to serving good elk meat to my friends & family this year!

Congrats!! Glad you got some steaks. The 30-06 is hard to beat.
