Calendar Year 2020 Elk Hunt & Introduction
« on: November 29, 2019, 07:34:20 AM »

For years now Ive wanted to go elk hunting however, life has kept me from going. After being stationed overseas for the last 3 yrs, Im finally pulling the trigger on a CY20 DIY elk hunt with my dad. Leaning towards either a cow or antlered hunt.


I swore up & down I wouldnt be one of those that jumps on here asking for info therefore, I figured it would be money well spent to sign-up for Corey Jacobsens UEH Crs which I did today.


I spoke to F&G several times over the last month and come 1 Dec I plan on purchasing an OTC elk tag/wolf. Additionally, its not lost on me I can hunt Oregon at resident prices (AD military) however, my trip to Idaho serves a purpose of seeing the state for future retirement options after my stint as an Training Instructor.


With this said, whos Elk101 on here? Id like to ask him a few questions if he doesnt mind. I was using the Search function w/i this forum and found a couple comments from Elk101 from 2017 Id like to expand on if possible.

Lastly, as my elk hunting experience increases over the next few years I look fwd to becoming a contributing member to this forum.

Welcome to the forum! Feel free to fire away with your questions on here as there are a lot of knowledgeable folks around. If you are trying to get in touch with Corey (Elk101), the easiest thing to do would be to email him. Just know that this time of year is crazy for him with getting the daily Destination Elk videos released, so it might take some time for him to respond to you. His email is corey@elk101.com.


Good luck!

Thank you sir. I appreciate the info. Corey & Donnie do a stand-up job making the Destination Elk videos. Between Destination Elk and Solo Hunter both are my top 2.

Nothing for me. I held back, but I can't say I wasn't tempted! Yourself?

What unit did you settle on?


Myself and 2 or 3 other disabled vets will be making the trip out this year for an elk hunt but haven't settled on which unit to hunt. We were wanting to hunt Salmon but those tags sold out within the first few days. This will be my first elk hunt.


Best of luck to you in the coming season.

Right now looking at 36a. My dad & I ended up getting the Pioneer B Tag (late season cow). And yes, you gotta be quick with those tags. Pioneer unit sold out w/i a few hours.


Whats your game plan since Salmon sold out?
