Late Elk Season
« on: November 22, 2009, 06:27:00 PM »
Hi,
I will be going out for the late elk season.  Southwest area,  Willapa hills maybe.  Anyone else got time left to spend hunting.  I'll be going out the second week of December.
I better double check my rain gear also.

I went down yesterday and back today. I tried camping out last night and BRRRRR it was cold.  I saw two cow elk. But in the wrong area and a couple of does.  All the sign was frozen.  In other words it wasn't still in the elk when I saw it.  
I went into the Bear River area just south of Naselle (sp?)  covered a couple of ridges last night and a different couple this morning. Nothing there but a couple of cold looking birds.
 If your heading out this coming weekend, I could be talked into driving back down.  I hated to give up so easy but didn't want to spring for a motel.

With sundown at 4:30 and temps in the single digits, the nights are reallllly long.  A warm motel room would be my choice over your setup.  Good luck if you return.

I would have gladly taken you up on that Gene.  I looked foward to roughing it a bit but underestimated the weather.  
Too Bad on the miss.  I accomplished something similar during the early season. I can still picture the arrow as it SHOULD have looked.
 I hope your season was successful anyway. Mybe I'll end up meeting you sooner or later.  I am trying to make more TBW functions this year.

Thanks again for the offer.
