OUR GUARANTEE – Unlike other Outfitters that  guarantee success or shot opportunities we know that it is impossible to do so on public land fair chase hunts. This is especially true when it comes to Roosevelt elk hunting in the Rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. Our guarantee is that we scout and work hard year around to prepare for your success. This is what gives us a very high shot opportunity rate.  We have game cameras set up in several locations throughout the year and we produce hundreds of pictures and videos of the Roosevelt elk that we will hunt during the season. Not only do we say that we scout but we can prove it by producing more footage than most other Roosevelt elk outfitters combined. We guarantee that we are committed to scouting year around and that you will hunt hard in productive areas from daylight until dark. We do not drop you off in blinds and leave you. We are your guide to success. We guarantee that you will have a great guide and that you will be in or around elk every day of the hunt. We also guarantee that you will be well fed and that we will give 150% each and every day that you are with us. Other than those guarantees we do not guarantee success or shot opportunities but we do guarantee that we will do whatever we can to make sure it happens. This is fair chase hunting and nobody wants to succeed more than us.

TERRAIN & HUNTING TECHNIQUES – To sum it up in a few words the terrain on the Oregon coast is mostly steep and brushy.  Canyons are one after the other and often filled with tall trees and heavy dense brush. The forest floor is often covered with brittle sticks and leaves making it difficult to move quietly.  Once you reach the canyon bottom however it is often a breathtaking view with grassy creek bottoms and a Roosevelt elks paradise. Steep and brushy is the typical for Roosevelt elk hunting and shot opportunities are most often 75 yards and less with a rifle. Areas where the trees have been cut down, known as clearcuts, provide early morning and late evening opportunities for glassing but a wise bull rarely spends his time in these areas. Expect to use methods such as still hunting in the thick forests, setting up in bedding areas, tracking and the occasional spot and stalk should we be lucky and catch them in the open. We often utilize ground blinds in bedding areas or on ridge top saddles between canyons as we wait for elk to move from bedding to feeding areas and vice versa. During archery season we will spend time calling as we work ridge tops, benches and saddles that are bedding areas for the elk. 

BOOKING All hunts are booked on first come first serve basis. We take a small number of clients each year to ensure high success so availability is usually limited. It is important to plan early when booking a hunt with us. A non refundable DEPOSIT of 25% is due when you book a hunt. The balance is due 30 days prior to the hunt start.

WHAT’S INCLUDED – All hunts include meals, lodging, guide service and all transportation once you arrive in camp. Also included is skinning of your animal and preparing meat and hide for delivery to our local butcher shop and taxidermist. We will also assist with preparation of meat and hide for airplane travel. If you wish to donate some or all of your meat we have a form for you to fill out to make it a legal process.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED – Not included are tags and licenses, transportation cost to and from camp, motel costs before or after scheduled trip, rental cars, meat processing, taxidermy or gratuities for guides.

AIRPORTS – Generally the most economical airport to fly is Portland, Oregon (PDX) and then rent an SUV for your travel to camp. Depending on the area that we will hunt you may choose to fly into Eugene, Oregon (EUG) which is sometimes closer to camp. We will determine this after booking and before you purchase your travel.

GRATUITIES– Although not required, as in any service business gratuities are greatly appreciated. A recommended amount of 10-20% gratuity for a hard working guide is standard.
