Bear Paw's fall 2000 Elk Hunt was Excellent! Good conditions with a very solid elk population. Very responsive bulls gave us one of our best elk hunts. We finished our season by harvesting 5 bulls out of 6 clients. 4 out of 5 bulls were at least 6 points on one antler with the other bull being a 5X4.
Lots of bulls in the 240-250 range in 2000. Should give us an opportunity at 300 or better for elk in 2001.
Bowen Dolhan took our best bull a 315, 6X6 with a 44" inside spread.
Linda Despot harvested her first elk, a nice 6X5, on an excellent 250 yard shot. Linda also took a 40" moose as well as a 6'6" black bear on her hunt with Bear Paw.
Tim Finch harvested a great 6X6 with a tremendous bottom end with veteran Bowen Dolhon.
