Hunting outfitter and guide Mike Jenkins of Upfront Outfitters, located in Oregon, has a special connection with the Roosevelt Elk, whose habitat is west of the I-5 in both Oregon and Washington state. I hadn't talked to Mike in a while, so I gave him a ring just to find out what was going on. I'm on the Oregon coast right now. Reception's pretty limited, so I'll do the best I can. Are you archery hunting by yourself or with a client, what's going on? I have clients. I actually just dropped one off in a tree stand. I've got a Roosevelt Elk. I got about like a 360 bull on my game camera. The only way I think I'm going to be able to even have a chance at that is through a tree stand. I got the hunter sitting in a tree stand and with any luck, we'll have a magazine cover. It hasn't been easy. It's getting hotter and hotter all the time. Yeah, but you're a Roosevelt Elk specialist, don't you think? I don't know. Let's just say I've hunted and harvested a lot more than most. But I don't know if there's any such thing as a specialist with these animals the way they adapt. The animals get smarter and smarter, and most people don't change with the time as the animals adapt and get smarter to the hunting pressure to all pressure, wolves, human pressure, they change. But the human behavior doesn't necessarily change and the hunting techniques don't really change. So we're adapting somewhat to that. Upfrontoutfitters.com If you want to hunt a Roosevelt.
