Bull elk in this area are known for their wide span in age/size. In the last 10 years they have taken a 395”, a 340”, a number of 320’ but the best estimate of the average bull taken each year is 275-315 which is a large span because of the large area and multiple paths that bring the bulls through the area.
Hundreds of thousands of acres of National forest lays above him with elk being able to live and never see a person, or chased by a hunter. Elks ability to reverse migrate, roam a large area, and easily change food sources make this a ideal place for a big bull but we all must agree unless we hunt a high fence elk hunt these free ranging elk have no problem covering 5 miles per day, or stay in the same meadow or timber for weeks. This is part of what makes him so elusive and such a valued trophy for a successful hunter per day.
