The Thrill Of Oregon Elk Hunting!

Oct 12, 2007
While hunting elk in Oregon may not be the first place to come to mind when thinking of premier elk hunting locations, the state actually offers great options for the elk hunter looking for adventure, all with the beautiful and serene Oregon landscape. Oregon has found a way to strike a balance between maintaining it's beautiful and natural landscape, while still catering to the big game sportsmen. With recent conservation efforts, Oregon's elk population has not only boomed, but they've produced healthier and bigger bulls and cows for the hunter to target. With a little planning and research a hunter can be off to Oregon for the very next elk season.

After deciding on the area in the state the hunter wishes to track his quarry, a guide service should be the next concern for the hunter. Regardless of experience, many hunters prefer to enlist the help of a guide for a few reasons. The number one most important one is that these guides spend their days tracking Oregon elk; no other person knows these elk better, so for the hunter coming from away, the guide will be an invaluable resource.

Another reason elk hunters prefer a guide service is the many amenities offered; they are often considered a one stop shop. For the hunter not wanting to spend all of his time finding food and lodging and transportation, he can find a guide service that provides all of these amenities. While the general rule is that the more amenities provided, the steeper the price, the hunter has many options to choose from. The one thing to be sure of is to reserve well in advance though, as many hunters book months or even a season ahead of time to ensure their spot.

One other great reason to enlist the help of a guide service is the sheer knowledge these guides offer. They know the Oregon terrain well and have often tracked the same elk herd season after season, so not only do they know their habits intimately; they also know what it takes to draw them in. Bugling, the practice of calling elk into sight by mimicking a mate's call, can often be a very tricky task to master. Many guides however do have it mastered and prove a priceless resource for drawing elk into the area. The last thing they are often good for is their manpower. Elk are massive animals, and if a hunter is lucky enough to bag a trophy, getting him back to camp can often be a huge feat in itself, so every set of hands can make a difference.

When searching for a guide service, the decision will be up to the preference of the hunter. One thing to be sure of though is that the guide service you choose is licensed in the state of Oregon; many services will offer their license number to you without ever being asked. Regardless of the route a hunter decides to go, hunting elk in Oregon is sure to be an experience unmatched.
