ND Looking for Sharpshooters

ND is looking for some people to help harvest cow elk in the Nat'l park. Here is a link to the application and information.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

Let me see if I can round up some partners.

Free elk permits is a good deal.

Re: ND Looking for Sharpshooters

To my knowledge and what I read this will be the first time non federal shooters have been aloud to cull animals in the nat'l parks. It won't be free, you have five days of lodging and board. If you leave early you forfeit the meat and the ability to do it in the future. You will be shooting what the team leader(nat'l park rep.) tells you to shoot. No bulls.

The terrain for you elk hunters will be easy not half as bad as the mountains you hunt. The weather will be a little intimidating for some. -25 isn't uncommon for the time of year they plan to cull the animals.

Remember only lead free bullets!!

Re: ND Looking for Sharpshooters

From what I've been hearing you only get half of the meat you shoot off one cow. All the other meat goes to donations. This may sound like a good deal, but you can't leave anything out in the park, and you can't bring a vehicle in to transport the meat out. It's all on foot. They had been thinking about bringing in a mule team to transport meat, but I haven't heard much more about that.

It's going to be a dog and pony show if you ask me.

Go to the ND game and fish website they have a video there about it. There will be prof. packers for to far stuff, but if you are close to the road they expect you to be able to do it. As far as the meat goes the nat'l park can't give someone meat it is illegal, but they can donate it to a state agency like the game and fish which in turn will split it up to the volunteers. I suppose evenly so it all depends on how successful it is in how much you would get. The only problem I see is the lead free bullets you don't have many options.
