    Nevada Elk and Deer

    Anyone hunt or put unit/s in Jarbridge wilderness? I'm only on my 3rd year applying so not expecting to draw was just curious

    I have hunted the area before for deer not elk. Ive heard horse back is the way to get to the big bulls in that country.

    How long ago did you hunt Jarbridge? Rifle or bow? I have been looking at it for maybe a deer cow elk combo with my bow. What were the deer numbers like?

    I read somewhere that the elk tend to stick to the east side of the wilderness area??? Haven't decided if I'm putting in for the archery tag or first rifle.

    Not to sure about the east side. Have you spoke to the Biologist? They are very helpful and very willing to give you info on were the Elk are and when for your season. I was very surprised to find out that not to many hunters talk to the fish and game in a new area that has been drawn. More then 3 I spoke too in the past sat me down over the phone with a map in front of me and gave me very specific location to look. Give it a try,

    ya i tried fish and game last year for an antelope hunt and got very general info. Have also been told to "find it online". I figured out what i am doing for deer, antelope, cal sheep. now to figure out desert sheep.

    I will try that with Biologist its my experience, albeit limited, that they are better to talk to than fish and game more willing with information but it could just be my experience also. I read the part about the elk sticking to the east part in an article about the Jarbridge wilderness, the article wasn't geared towards hunting but rather hiking and camping and it just mentioned that about the elk when talking about wildlife that you can expect to see

    Ok thanks Woodtick I'll be sure and do that if I draw it!
    I have heard good things about Cottonwood Ranch outfitters, maybe someday I'll be able to afford a guided hunt
