Rocky Mt vs Roosevelt
« on: May 06, 2018, 05:21:45 PM »
This Fall will be my first year Elk hunting (muzzleloader on the OP).  Been doing lots of reading, going through Elk101 class etc.  I was wondering what are the key differences between the two species, especially given I plan hunting the west side of the OP.  For example, scouting online looks a lot easier to find habitat for East of the mountains but less defined for the OP given the amount of vegitation.  Are north facing slopes still critical, what about water etc?

Water will be a non-factor on the peninsula. Honestly I canít really say that there is anything you can look for on google earth that would tell you there was elk in the area for Roosevelt hunting.
If you can get into the area now, start spending your weekends there and get eyes on some elk. Roosevelt elk donít really migrate or travel all too far. Try and find a couple groups and keep trying to keep tabs on them until season. Lucky for you the bulls are usually still vocal in the first part of muzzy . And will still be with cows when you go. Good luck to you.
