Oregon Roosevelt Elk Hunting Guides
This is a solid hunt for Roosevelt elk in Oregon with a great outfitter.
Oregon is among one of the toughest place to find and hunt elk. With so much private land, dense vegetation, and pockets of public land here and there. Roosevelt elk hunting can become a nightmare for any hunter trying to find the type of bull they’ve been dreaming of. With the help of this guide your chances of accomplishing that dream come to life.
This outfitter is the largest Roosevelt Elk outfitter in the state harvesting 15-25 bulls a year across their leases and public ground. They control over 30,000 acres of private ground. Rifle hunts can include an LOP tag (landowner voucher) for non-residents.
Expect to spend many hours glassing for elk feeding and rutting in clearcuts, natural meadows, and reprod. You will be hunting a mix of 20,000 acres of private as well as public land, and you won’t be in competition with public hunters.
This hunt is a great option for archery hunters
Like everywhere, bow hunting Roosevelt elk hunting in Oregon can be difficult, but his archery-only elk hunt has a 75% success rate! This outfitter has a wealth of knowledge about elk hunting in Oregon. Roosevelt elk live in a dark, lush, patchwork of old-growth timber, clearcuts, and reproduction forest (reprod) with a confusing maze of logging roads often ending in locked gates — along the Pacific coast from California to British Columbia. To make matters worse, in Oregon the habitat is a hodgepodge of farms, timberland, and homes, mixed in with huge chunks of public land. It would take a lifetime for a DIY bowhunter to figure out where to legally hunt…. this hunt is your solution. All of the guides are very archery hunting savvy, and bowhunters themselves.
*Columbia blacktail can be added on a trophy fee basis.

I couldn’t have asked for anything better from my first elk hunt! I killed my bull on the fourth day. It was the most intense hunt I’ve ever had.
On my hunt I saw elk every day for the week I was hunting I probably saw 100 to 150 elk over the week.
This was was my first Western hunt ever and I didn’t know what to expect. I could not have been happier. Russ and I have developed a solid client / provider relationship in the short time we’ve ok now each other through the phone. Hope to meet and hunt with him someday!
