    Pole Creek Elk (Heppner Unit)

    My wife drew a tag for the Pole Creek Muzzleloader elk hunt in the random draw (about 5% odds). She is my tag drawing machine. We are hoping she will get her first bull.

    This will be a low pressure elk hunt with only a handful of tags. It is valid for all public land in the Heppner unit (Oregon). I've never set foot on this unit and like a lot of low odd tags that come unexpectedly, I am just starting my homework. If you have any info that can get us pointed in the right direction, we'd appreciate it. Feel free to PM me if you are willing to help.
    Grand Slam #1005 + 2: Dall (1986 Yukon), Fannin/Stone (1987 Yukon), Bighorn (1988 Colorado Unit S-26), Stone (1995 British Columbia), Desert (2001 Nevada Unit 161), Bighorn (2009 Wyoming Unit 5)

    Wow... She does know how to draw the tags! Maybe you should get her playing lottery instead of hunting applications?

    Ha ha…no doubt. When I told her the odds, she joked that it really isn't that bad of odds.

    Would you please introduce yourself. You might get more help! I hear a mountain lion decoy will bring them running in to you
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Absolutely! You have to get the elks attention and let them know there is a big kitty around.
