Here's the secret to killing a P&Y Roosevelt bull elk and the same applies to taking a B&C Roosevelt bull elk too.

Here's a bull picked up by authorities found dead just west of where I like to hunt and probably should have been hunting. This is the widest bull I've ever seen or scored and according to the record books, it's one of the top widest ever recorded. This rack has a 46.75" inside spread and grossed 326. Makes me wonder how he could fit his antlers through the brush? [Confused]

It's been several years now but I thought many of you Blacktail Bow fans would love this pic. This is Norm standing over a huge dug out area by an oversize Roosevelt bull way back in some very remote country on the Oregon coast. Didn't see or hear anything but a memorable evening with a dear friend. No, he isn't pulling up marijuana to take home, that's a fern the bull tore out of the ground.

I dont watch much outdoor channel stuff but was interested when I saw a show about Roosevelt elk hunting. It was cool seeing the terrain and critters but when the wheelie guy shot his bull at what he said was 101 yards...yes a hundred and one [saywhat] I suddenly remembered why I dont watch much TV anymore LOL....I'll stick to checking this thread out [thumbsup]

This was from a few years ago where it was opening week of season and this great 8x7 bull stood broadside at 40 yards for me. I didn't even bother knocking an arrow, to far of a shot. I had a great time trying for him for a month and even saw an even bigger giant two days after this bull.

A nice place to stop by and view Roosevelt elk is at Deans Creek Elk Refuge near Reedsport. Took these pics a few years ago when I drove by the refuge, the bulls were sunning themselves in the afternoon.

Here's a nice spike bull in bow range but with a tangle of brush in the way. It's good to practice kneeling shots and bent over canting your bow to shoot under limbs, etc. This is typical scenario for us stickbow hunters pursuing these bulls in the thick evergreens.

Scouting is so important when it comes to elk hunting, it can't be emphasized enough. A few summers ago I was driving along the logging road when I spotted these bulls in a clearcut just before dark the week before season opened. The bull on the left is a good looking 6x6 P&Y canidate.

Here's a couple giants that got poached several years ago out of the Powers unit. It's too bad that some trad bowhunters couldn't have taken them. The top bull goes 325 gross and I think the bottom went 315.

One thing is for sure about this pic, it definitely shows how freaking big bodied this Rosy is and older bulls can get. This bull was only 7 years old though. It's those 9 or 12 year old bulls that look prehistoric.
