Congrats on your bull Logger. Say, what part of Oregon did you hunt? I have been hunting the Sumpter unit mostly. I seem to find elk but it hasn't worked out for me yet. This will be my fourth year bowhunting for elk, almost thinking about going back to the rifle.
You went five years though. I have gotten deer, but I sure would like to have some elk meat in the freezer.

Southern Oregon coast...it's a couple of private ranches that our great, great grandfathers pioneered back in the 1880's. I wish I could invite you, but my cousin and I are the only ones that are allowed to access this little slice of heaven. I would suggest a Montana decoy and calls...Good luck!!

Im in Lagrande and I hunt the same area, you need a person to call for you, to get behind you 20yds so the bull walks past you looking for the caller and then your able to shoot him.
or tree stand it.

My normal hutning party drew rifle tags this year, so I archery hunted by myself. My logic was to not shoot one too far from the road, within a half mile or so. I did get in elk, but since I called for myself its not as easy. But its not impossible either I suppose. I always have fun chasing elk and getting close to them. I cover ground in areas we have gotten into them before. I just don't think that I can sit in a tree stand all day. I would get stir crazy.

I really like the elkhorn mountains, alot. I wished I didn't live a hour and a half from them. I live in Pendleton.
