Oregon Roosevelt Elk Hunting

Oregon Elk Hunting
Oregon is estimated to have the 5 th largest Elk population in the United States with an estimated 125,000 elk. With an abundance of hunting opportunities, this makes Oregon one of the premier destinations for elk hunters in the country. Approximately 65,000 elk are the Rocky Mountain species living east of the Cascade Mountain range. Another 60,000 Roosevelt Elk make up the difference west of the Cascade mountains. The majority of the Roosevelt Elk live west of Interstate 5 in the GMU’s throughout Western Oregon and in the Coast Range mountains along the Pacific Ocean. These same units are the ones we concentrate our archery and rifle Roosevelt Elk Hunting.

Oregon Blacktail Deer Hunting

Oregon Blacktail Deer Hunting
Western Oregon’s Blacktail Deer population is estimated to be around 300,000 or more animals. They live in the lush habitat of the coastal mountains and western Cascades with most trophy blacktail coming from the Southern Oregon units. Though any unit in Oregon has the potential of producing trophy animals, the counties in which we hunt produce the most records entered into the books year after year. We hunt both public and private lands for trophy Blacktail Deer and offer trophy muzzleloader hunts with a controlled draw tag.
