    Question Imnaha Archery Elk

    I am starting bow hunting this year and have decided to give the Imnaha unit a try for elk in September. I am planning to pack in solo for 4-6 days, and was wondering if anybody could recommend a good starting point. I'm going to go on one or two scouting trips this summer, but know this is big steep/deep country and any advice would be great.

    I don't know the Imnaha unit, but I am also from Oregon. If you have trouble getting replies on this site you ought to try iFish, since there are a lot of Oregon members on there.

    You may give Vic or Pat from the Enterprise ODFW field office @ 541 426 3279. They may give you a few areas to look at, or know a contact that will share info. I hope the guys on ifish don't beat you up too much, they can be brutal on new guys asking for intel. Good luck!

    Depends where in the Imnaha unit you want to go to! I have hunted the Imnaha and Minum quite a bit.

    Well I've spent more than enough time in that area by this point. It takes hundreds of miles and a lot of time before things really start to click with how a lot of that country functions and is laid out. If you are planning on packing right up the river on the indian crossing trail I would suggest to get a new plan. The bottom of the imnaha river forks looks like a small civilized city these days during archery season. With the wolves in there now too and all the hunters the elk hunting is far from ideal right up the canyon. Theres a decent number of elk in that country, and some good ones here and there. Get away from the trail by a few miles or more and out of the way of where most guys want to go and you will probably find some animals.
