I think he is hunting in Missouri.
I understand that. I have land in Missouri and was wondering what area OF MISSOURi the Elk hunt is in
The transplants were in the SSE part of the state. Mostly Reynolds and Shannon counties I believe. The old "Peck Ranch" if you remember it. Really not that far from me.
Yes, the hunt area is around Peck Ranch CA. Don't think hunting will be allowed inside the fence around the CA itself. Lots of NF ground there though. They USUALLY have a B/P managed deer hunt there inside the fence in December, but the way things are going, who knows?
We hunted outside the fence this past November firearms season They have three small camping areas. One is tents only, no generators.
Good luck! over the years I've been fortunate to draw several very difficult tags, including the only out of state mule deer tag in Idaho zone 18 one year, so it can happen. but most years we come up empty in the draws. I still apply for several zones in CA and Nevada, and for special hunts in Idaho and Wyoming, none this year, since the stroke in February, i'm very doubtful that I'll get out at all this season I didn't even apply. I sold my quad and my Toyota truck, so my hunting rigs are gone. have to start over collecting toys next year.
if you get an elk, this will be our best friend!!
Probably going to need a really long extension cord.
My Elk quartering Sawzall is cordless.
Most come with a battery or you can use a long cord if you like!
I like the cord idea. Have it hooked to a winch, Get your quartering done tie your quarters to the cord. push a button and the winch tows all your parts back thru woods over mts across rivers any obstacles or distance right to the front door of your camp.
Mine is too ysacres. It' always in my Rhino along with spare batteries when elk, deer or antelope hunting, makes breaking them down easy peasy.
Works better if you quarter it after you pull it up the hide protects the meat.
Go luck on the draw, Silas. Elk hunting is awesome! To hear the bugles, to see those massive animals travel so quietly and nimbly through the woods... exhilarating!
Elk meat is the finest “wild game” meat I have ever eaten. I have killed 7 in my elk hunting experience (first elk hunt trip was 12 years ago). All harvests were in Colorado, Steamboat Springs area. Every elk was field dressed and drug out one way or another ... winch and pulley, a couple of guys, or pulled behind a 4-wheeler. I was supposed to go again this fall, but it didn’t work out, so we are planning next year already!
My buddy once told me just after we spent most of the day retrieving 2 elk out of a nasty canyon full of blowdowns "If a guy had to work this hard at a job, he'd quit". Wish he was still here, he passed away that same year.
It would be once in a lifetime thing for me. I figure my odds of being drawn are about the same as me winning the Powerball lottery. I checked into hunting them in KY but (if I remember correctly) it's not open to non-residents.
