No kidding! Iím lucky if I get one chance a season and if I donít close the deal on that one And I actually get a second chance thereís no way heís not going down, branches in the way or not. You must have a pretty short elk season if you get a chance every day canít take it more than two or three days a season Iím sure. Even the best hunters I know donít do that but must have a large piece of private property somewhere. I find it highly unlikely anyone could find that kind of success on public land when you have no idea what all of the other hunters are going to be doing. 10 miles back or not youíre still running into people and as much as you can pattern elk I sure as heck canít seem to pattern all these other hunters

Haha I was waiting for someone to comment this. When I read that they get a shot on a roosevelt elk every DAY...best hunter ever or maybe a bit of embellishing? Lol

You are putting words in my mouth, I didn't say a shot per day, I said an opportunity per day, big difference.  Most of the time it doesn't work out, I back out due to unfavorable conditions or blow a chance due to wind, sight, sound... whatever.   I've spent a lot of time in past years figuring out where they ain't and I've found out where the herds go when pressured.  I can drive to those places, walk in, see if they are there and if they aren't, I quickly move on.  I do this all season with lots of spots to check.   It is only recently where I've been getting chances nearly every day.  Maybe that won't continue but since it has gotten better each year as I've learned, I expect I can maintain a good pace next season.
 

I don't think that's unrealistic to have an "opportunity" every day I think the misunderstanding is thinking you have a shot at a bull elk everyday  :dunno: If I am elk hunting I can go to many spots also and will find at least a bull to mess with during archery season. Getting a shot opportunity is another story and then not choking on said shot opportunity another story altogether  :chuckle: I agree with what I think you said and I can put myself in the vicinity of an elk almost everyday during archery season but I cant do that during rifle every day. Doesn't mean I will get a shot everyday but I will be close enough to  have an opportunity and I will be at least in with a bull or multiple bulls. I know nothing about hunting elk on Oregon coast  :chuckle:

WOW! You must be the most stupendous elk patternater ever in the history of ever to kill an elk everyday! Or did I just read all that wrong... Opportunity means to harvest right...  :dunno:.  Again with the instant trash talk...

You've called me liar and then accused me of trash talking?  Dude.  Look, I know what I've been able to do in the past season and I stand by that, you can pound sand.

LOL... Wow, look you clearly missed what I was saying. First of all, I wasn't talking about you. I was talking about nwmein199's comments and Hillhounds comments trashing on the comments of having an opportunity everyday. The exact opposite of what your getting from it. I didn't say anything about lying... So put your face in the sand for me...

Your post didn't quote a previous post but your reply came right after mine so I think you can see why I thought it was intended for me.  I'll take you at your word and apologize.

It was really directed at the negative comments and not you man. I get daily opportunities as well every year on public land and in a unit that's labeled to have limited access and the majority is private land. It's not unheard of.

I know what you meant I was agreeing with you. I can have an opportunity every day that's different than having a kill shot to take everyday  :tup:

If a guy doesn't find elk every day during archery season, you got problems
