Ochoco Youth Elk Tag Help
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.
