    Ochoco Youth Elk Tag Help

    Hey Guys!

    I'm new on the forum but I figured that I may be able to get good some advice. After 5 years of putting in for my youth cow tag for the Ochoco's I finally drew it this year. Needless to say I'm pretty dang excited to the unit this year. This is my last year as a youth and hopefully the first year I harvest an elk. The odds are in my favor due to the fact that I have from August first to mid December. I hunted the unit for elk two years ago for elk in the Rager TMA and around Big Summit Prairie and only saw a monster 6x6 bull. So basically I was looking for a few suggestions on where to find a cow in the unit. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting many of you! Good luck hunting this year and God bless.

    Welcome to EF elkaholic11. I have not spent much time in the Ocohoco's lately, so I'm not the best advisor on that unit. I personally would just wait for a little snow, I don't think it would be too tough to find some elk then. Not to mention the cold weather helps when caring for the meat, which is pretty much what a cow tag is about. Good luck, I'm sure you will have success if you put in some effort.

    Thanks for the advice Timberstalker. I'm sure the snow and cold weather would help my chances greatly.
