ROOSEVELT ELK- There are only a few areas in the world where you can hunt true pure blooded Roosevelt elk. The coastal mountains of Washington State is one of these areas. Roosevelt elk live in the thick dense forest and logging country of the Pacific Northwest. These coastal rainforest have absolutely breathtaking views but they also average over 120 inches of rain annually, so bring your raingear. With such a huge amount of annual rainfall the forest in this region has huge trees and is incredibly dense with very lush underbrush. A dense forest has many hunting benefits but often makes for very limited visibility. With low visibility most of our rifle shot opportunities are well under 100 yards and often 75 yards or less. Bow hunters often have encounters as close as 5 yards with 20-30 yard shots being most common. Because of challenges with the diverse weather and habitat of the Roosevelt elk, they are said to be one of the most difficult species in the country to hunt.
QUALITY- We strongly focus on hunting mature and respectable representatives of our species but because of the difficulty of the Roosevelt elk we recommend not passing a legal bull ( 3 point minimum) unless you are satisfied with the possibility on not having another shot opportunity. We cannot control the number of shot opportunities that you will have during your hunt but we guarantee that everyday of our hunt you will be in elk rich areas that have been well scouted. In Washington State your average Roosevelt bull elk will be a mature 5×5 bull with exceptional 300 + class 6x and bigger bulls being present in all of our hunting areas.
SUCCESS- Our 3 year average success on a 5 day hunt is 60-85% shot opportunity with .50% success, 7-8 day hunt is 75-90% success and 10-12 day hunt has been 100% success.
HUNTING METHODS- Our favorite and most successful method is still-hunting through timbered canyons and river drainages combined with spot and stalk hunting in open logging country. We will also occasionally use ground blinds and tree stands in productive feeding and travel areas. During the archery season we will add calling to our arsenal for locating bulls and then getting aggressive with them once we’ve gotten close. Although baiting is legal in our state we are very successful and skillful hunters and choose to hunt our game opposed to bait it. Being able to adapt to any and all hunting methods necessary, depending on conditions, will lead to much greater opportunities and better results.
LODGING- There is a wide combination of lodging that can be part of this hunt. Base camps will be conducted from either a rental house, motel, cabin or a tent camp. From there we will hunt several different areas and spike out as needed for success. We will come back to the base camp every few days as needed for food, shower, dry clothes and a good night sleep. For the hardcore hunters, weather permitting, we can stay overnight in hammocks or small spike camps deep into elk territory.
AVAILABILITY and BOOKING- All hunts are available on a first come basis. To ensure quality and success, as of 2018 our clientele will be reduced to a maximum of 2 hunting groups (either one hunter per guide or two hunters per guide) per week for rifle season and a maximum of two hunters per week for all other elk and deer hunts. Mike Jenkins will be your personal guide on all hunts unless other arrangements are made at booking.
DEPOSITS- All hunts require a 25% non refundable deposit at the time of booking unless other arrangements are made. Hunts booked within 6 months of the hunt start require a 50% Deposit. The hunt balance is due 30 days prior to the hunt. We accept money orders, cashier checks, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We also accept ATM debit cards. Unfortunately we will no longer accept personal checks for final payments unless made prior to the 30 day deadline
Season Dates should be accurate but are tentative until the 2018 regulations are issued in the spring.
