NE raffle tags.
« on: August 12, 2019, 02:16:28 PM »
I drew the NE raffle permits and was wondering what the best bet for elk would be. Units 101-124. Sept 1- Dec 31. What would you do?

Id have chosen extra bear instead of elk, so i could be the only guy in the state hunting spring bear in 113 next year, and focus on a killer whitetail and moose for the fall.  But thats just me.

I have only a hearty GOOD LUCK on your quest. I know family members that don't share that info with each other.  :twocents:

What a draw, congrats!  I hope you have a lot of time off!!  You may get a pm but those ne guys/gals donít talk about their elk.  Iíd just get over there and scout, Iíve been scouting for my moose tag in 113 and I already know where Iíll be bow hunting for elk.  In sept youíll be able to listen for them, best of luck with all your tags!!

I think raffle tags end before bears would be out.

Iíd rather take my chances on an elk. I got a bear last week. The raffle tag would have covered bear in the spring if I would have chose it.

If he selected bear, he could have used it next spring season too.  Only one way to hunt spring bear in 113.  Win the ne big game pkg and select bear as one of your 3.

Wishing you good luck.  I have no idea where elk would be over there but I am hoping you find one and have a great hunt.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Depends on what you want to shoot......be assured, elk hunting is difficult at best here and if you want a great bull, you will have to spend a great deal of time finding him.  Sure it can be done, just dont bank on luck.

Harvest results for elk and go with the unit with highest success for all weapons, then hunt before, through out and after the rut.

I'd bump that to the 12th.   ;)    I have found that to be the day to be in the woods up there.  All I am going to give ya.   Enjoy some fantastic hunting.
