Oregon Coast Elk
« on: January 23, 2020, 11:29:51 AM »
I'm doing my first out of state hunt on the Oregon Coast this coming general archery season. I have an area picked out already up in Weyco land and I've done a scouting trip already as well but I was wondering where I can find somewhere online or if anyone knows of some locked up walk in only areas. Looking at the coos bay/roseburg area. I'd much rather hunt behind locked gates..  Any help is appreciated.

Better get your Weyco permit within seconds of when they go up for sale.

why pay more to hunt for the same experience you can get on our coast?
I know I've lost it, let me know if you come across it

Correction, it used to be the same experience. It's not even in the same conversation any longer. Don't get me wrong, some descent hunting still exists in the south west but it is not what it was even 5 years ago.

Iím not interested in the usual ďitís not what it use to beĒ comments, if you hunt hard it pays off no matter what. You must be talking about the road huntin isnít what it use to be.  :chuckle:

And the first comment about selling out in seconds, thatís BS too, I bought this years permit so that I can scout, 5 months after they went on sale so donít comment if you donít know what your talking about. I hate this forum anymore you canít even ask a simple question.. Iíll figure it out myself!!

Read a little closer my comment was not about the Oregon coast. I have taken 8 bulls in the last 10 years down there. I don't need to schooled on the rewards of hard work.

It's all good, i just felt my original comment wasn't read correctly. I actually was advocating for out of state hunting on the Oregon coast, and as for the post above mine a ton of those weyco areas do sell out fast.

I haven't hunted down there so perhaps I'm missing out but if I work hard where I hunt in WA I get an average of an opportunity at a bull each day.  That's good enough for me.

An opportunity at a bull a day?? Wow. On public land? Amazing.

 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 know I've lost it, let me know if you come across it

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...
