Roosevelt Elk Hunting
Roosevelt Elk Hunting
Roosevelt elk are found in Oregon and Washington but some inhabit northern California and British Columbia.
Roosevelt elk are tough to hunt because they often don’t bugle much, but our hunters have had great success on great bulls! The terrain they live in can be extremely rugged and wet because many of them inhabit the rainforest located in Northwestern North America. We have a number of hunts to choose from, and we’ll break them down here.

Oregon Roosevelt Elk Hunting Guides
Bow Hunting with a Savvy Oregon Outfitter
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.
Expect to spend many hours glassing for elk feeding and rutting in clearcuts, natural meadows, and reprod. All of the guides are very archery hunting savvy, and bowhunters themselves. 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 outfitter hunts in Units: 24; 25; and 26.
- The opportunity rates and trophy quality are VERY Good! Over 90% of bulls harvested make Pope and Young, and they have an incredible success rate of 75%!
- Bow hunting Roosevelt elk season in Oregon is mid-August through mid-September.
- Archery Tags are over the counter for every unit except Unit 26 (Powers Unit).

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.
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!
It was great experience to connect on that bull. Grant did a great job of putting me on elk and calling this one in.
