Re: 2009 Eastern Oregon elk hunt

Good going, remman! Thanks for posting your story.

I jumped a couple of fires in '91 up on Mt. Emily. Gorgeous country and great hunting all around La Grande.

Nice bull, especially when you have had to wait as long as you have. The edge obviously did the job.

Stu.

Re: 2009 Eastern Oregon elk hunt

Thanks guys.

It was a blast and we all had a good time as usual.

Forgot to mention that on friday the weather broke a bit in the morning and my uncle and a guy he was with saw a monster 6x7 probly 350 class. The bull I was really really looking to shoot. However, he only came out for an hour or so and I had already shot my bull wednesday morning. However, the chances of getting down to where my uncle and the bull was within that hour of time frame may or may not have happened.

Just never know. Guess thats why they call it hunting. We talked to several guys though that were pretty dissappointed overall in the quality of bulls they were seeing during this hunt. Not to many guys were seeing anything over 300 class, which is really really odd. I think the pressure from 1st season got to them and that pushed them all in the bottom timber which is not how we, or I like to hunt elk. Nice to be able to see what your going after, in other words. I know that during bow season, they were seeing several 350-380 bulls, but by the time 2nd season rolls around, they've been pushed around so much that they just go hide and done come out to often.

The 338 EDGE w/300g SMK performed flawlessly IMO. I was thinking of going to a lighter bullet, but I think I'm gonna stick with the big 300 grainer. It just flat gets the job done.

My cousins name is Brad, close, but probly not the guy your thinking of.
