Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

LOVE to hunt elk with a bow. In our state, only bow hunting is allowed during the rut. There is no more magical sound in nature than the sound of a bugling bull. Especially when he is busting timber as he comes in to your call.

Sure do!!--i love getting out there and sleeping under the stars on a mountain top-quite a bonus to hear an elk bugle during the night and feel my release finger start to quiver.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

The Elk seasons are pretty much history for this year in Oregon.
The new Hunting synopsis for 2013 is in the sporting goods store
racks. Time to start getting acquainted with the new rules and planning
next years hunts. It seems as this is a major project for fish and game every
year. They keep adding pages and pages of new restrictions on where when
and how you can hunt. Doesn't matter whether it's firearms or Bent stick and
strings. (BOW) I just wish the hunting would get better as a result of all
restrictive effort put forth.

Bears, Coyotes, Cougars, Wolves and poachers are in need of control.

As another Oregon hunter, I know where you're coming from. I just got my 2013 SW spring bear tag and I'm gonna try and help out on the bear control a little.

My son and I will be putting in for a Spring Bear tag also. It's been a couple
of years since we had tags.

My son and i both wolf tags-we have until 2/28/13 to fill them-that should help the elk and deer breathe a little easier

Good. That will help a little. Are you hunting them with a bow? If you are
be sure to pack some back-up. A pack can be pretty nasty.

Two wolves a male and female = one or more litters per year of 4 to 6 pups.
Lets say 3 of those pups are females = 3x4=12 plus another 4 to 6 from
the original pair = a total of 16. This is being quite conservative.

I think we are in for some dark days ahead, if the wolf is not delisted and hunted
like coyotes are now. I don't think we are keeping them in check all that well.

Unlike bears and cougars one litter per year of one or two.
