Cow Elk season went real well with Rich from California harvesting his first elk ever. Our other 3 hunters saw lots of elk but did not have any shot opportunities. Fred and his good friend Blye both harvested nice cows the last week of the season.
Rifle Bull Elk
1st Season went great, although historically we have run 100% on this hunt, this year 6 out of 9 hunters killed bulls and 1 bull was missed and one 5 x 5 passed up. Some great bulls were taken. All our hunters saw bulls, we just weren’t able to close the gap for 3 of the hunters.
2nd Season: Out of 9 elk hunters so far 8 have harvested bulls and we had 1 big bull missed twice and 2 other clients missed shots at different bulls. Our last hunter Frank from Texas shot a awesome 340″ bull on the second day of his hunt. With all our hunters done, our oldest son Jeb guided by Luke harvested a beautiful 6 x 6 bull on our ranch the last Friday of second season.
3rd Season: This week we have 11 hunters in. With unseasonably warm weather and temperatures averaging 75 degrees during the day so far we have harvested 4 bulls, had one 5 x 5 passed up. We still have 2 days to go and are hoping for some more success.
4th Season: We had one rifle elk hunter 4th season. Tom from Florida shot a bull on the 3rd day of his hunt with guide Lee.
