    2019 Roosevelt Elk

    We all want to see pics, and these days folks don't share them much.

    I drew a limited entry tag this year for Roosevelt Elk - honestly never thought the day would come. Always ran into bulls when I lived on the island, and put in for areas with decent odds, but we all know how that goes. Plan was to come in off the saltwater, get dropped off and backpack for 14 days or until we connected. Killed this bull the 5th day ~6.5 miles up one of the drainages. Lucked out with great weather (longest sunny stretch the south coast of British Columbia has seen in 65 years), a solid group of friends, and a great bull. Both photos taken by Peter Gutsche/Tatlow Creative. Photo is a little grainy as I had to resize on imgur to fit the screen.

    For any interested parties, The Journal of Mountain Hunting documented this hunt for their "Beyond The Kill - Elk Series" which can be found on their website/youtube.

    Nice bull looked through a couple vids but no Rosie you have a link?
    Yup, it's easier to manage hunters (LEH) than it is to manage wildlife. And, generally, LEH satisfies the Guide Outfitter because it limits the number of hunters in their area.
