Goose Prarie Archery Quality Elk Tag
« on: July 11, 2017, 12:08:18 PM »
I drew this tag first try with 8 pts. didnt think it would happen but it did. I haven't hunted it but will work hard to fill tag. I figured I'd hunt it a couple years before I drew a tag there. I dont usually put in for area I don't know. Expecting alot of people so I'm planning on packing in and have a couple places in mind. I've been up there scoutng once and plan on going this weeekend. Any advice or info would be appreciated.

If you are going to backpack into an area, only go in as far as you can get a bull out on your back before the meat goes bad. I see to many guys backpack into  areas where if they got a bull there is no way they could get it out  in time. Boned out bull is still two trips without your gear that you went in with. I have came across elk kills thats guys have left a lot meat because they only wanted to make one trip. And that is illegal !

There's some pretty good podcasts on backcountry meat care if you look for them.  Good luck with your tag.

I do know a couple areas that a guy can make two trips in a day that hold elk. After I make a trip in there  will let you know what I'm seeing. You have a great tag, Congrats and Good Luck !!!

I had the tag in 2011 . Plenty of elk within reasonable packing distance.  Just know your limits, or have lots of help.  Pm me if you want any information
SHUT UP & BENCH ! ! ! Bench BIG or go Home.
