Title: Re: 2019 Elk Harvest Post Here!!!
Post by: Rex_04 on September 09, 2019, 07:28:45 PM
Little bit of luck, I spotted him a couple weeks before the season started and decided that was going to be my bull. Came close the first two evenings, but couldnít seal the deal due to the lead cow busting me. We tried calling him in, but it was a little early for that and he didnít wanna come looking for a fight just yet. I ended up setting up a ladder stand next to their main trail they follow each evening on the way to feed and was able tag him.

Most of the bulls will be west side if OTC or if east side likely special permit. For the big west side bulls, many are on private land either farms or timber land. With all that harvest is around 9%.  If you don't get special permits or private access odds are even lower.  Guys I know got tired of their camps getting a raghorn every 5 or 6 years.  So they've gone to Idaho and almost all get a mature bull each year and can use their quads in the process while not being rained on for 10 days straight. They seem to enjoy.

No photo but harvested a cow in the Colockum at 5:30pm last Thursday evening. Litterally an hour before the season closed. Never give in, never give up, keep pushing.  :)

I always try and hunt the last day the woods are typically empty. Iíve notched a few tags on the last day :tup:

Early archery!

Canít see clearly enough to know for sure but that looks like quite possibly the largest 4x4 in history.

Great trip this year to northern New Mexico.  First day out of rifle season Oct 1. Clear morning with light wind, worked from top of mountain at 10,700ft hunted a couple of hours with some call locating and ultimately fairly aggressive calling. All to the ultimate success and a very unique bull.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191004/f9eefbb9d440d6bfeba0b52e360fd5e3.jpg)

He has one large tine broken on the top of the non-typical side. He had about thirty cows during archery, we were in the timber and I only saw a handful of cows. Heís big, weight hung at the butcher was 380#. So Iím sure he was able to handle himself.

After my New Mexico morning hunt, we processed my bull and grabbed some lunch.  We returned to the field and my brother headed to the other side of the mountain to sit for the afternoon.  He got into a herd around 5:00 and it was an active group, 15 or so cows, a couple spikes and a nice 6x6 herd bull.  After an early failed attempt to get on them he hunkered down and waited to relocate the bull.  Just past sunset he got the shot and took a nice bull.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191007/ae67fa233b9f936310e3a87b7414d3cc.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191007/c204d8c8ce545f82cd50fd8f6f9bd7eb.jpg)

Iíll add mine on here. First is a damage cow tag from here In washington. Second is Idaho cow. I went in September for archery and we got one bull but I came home empty handed. Was sent down to work in Idaho for 2 weeks and was fairly close to my elk zone and noticed a rifle cow hunt with my A tag. My buddy lives in the town I was staying at so on my day off, off we went. I used his rifle and filled the tag I thought was going In the garbage..... I DONT KNOW WHY THE PICS ARE BACKWARDS. IDAHO FIRST WASHINGTON SECOND

Bit delayed posting, been working thru processing it myself.  After 5yrs, I finally got it done here in WA on Sat morning.  Pretty darn happy with him specially given it is my 1st elk. 

Lot of meat hung and cut the last few days while temps were favorable.  All tucked away in the freezer now.  The steaks and roasts vac sealed and into freezer as soon as they were cut. Middle tray is the grind pile.

I was lucky enough to draw a multi season elk tag this year almost sealed the deal during archery season but missed. Ended up getting one during muzzleloader season. My group I muzzleloader hunted with went 5/5. Helped out my rifle rifle season crew mainly as chauffer and elk retriever.  They also ended up with 5 but they got their last one after I left.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191114/6ae2e63e08a91ad6bbc31c5fc7dc35e2.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191114/cef260efe8d6b8f1d6b85eaf906f7598.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191114/02f0e82da2096d0ff278268822d2cf90.jpg)

Nate and his buddies from Full Draw Outdoors have hit it hard the last week. Two others got cows in the last week also. They spotted his elk in a creek bottom and he stalked 200 yds making a perfect shot at the edge of his effective range, putting her down right away. Wife and I were out of town so he called sharing the news. His group rallied and got it all out that night.

Had a pretty good few days of elk hunting, found one that gave away his position and moved in really aggressively on him (he didnít want to come out) I pretty much ran in calling and breaking brush. Caught a few glimpses of him as he retreated. Kept after them calling like a rut crazed bull. I thought this was the bull right up to about 2 seconds before I released my arrow, seen it was a cow and was fine with that. She ran 20 yards and stopped, wobbly legs for a  second and tipped over in sight.   :drool:

Is it just me or has it been very quiet for elk this year? I am not seeing a lot of posts.
Most of the people I talked to said they thought it was really slow.  Not just seeing less elk, but fewer tracks, rubs, sign, etc.  Over the summer, there seemed to be lots of activity seen by scouting and trail cams.  The bowhunters I talked to said there were more people in the early seasons (in the GMUs I go to) than they had ever seen before and really put some pressure on the elk.   :dunno:  By the time muzzy rolled around, seemed like they were still in hiding.  When muzzy ended, I saw more deer hunters going in than I've ever seen (in GMUs that have real low deer harvest rates).  The rifle elk guys that stayed the whole season were doing some fishing since the elk were being so slow.  All I saw, early and late combined were a couple 4 pts, a 2 pt and a spike.
