-- 30-06-hunterThose of us who have already put in the time and effort aren't just going to tell you where to go, as indicated in many of the 'I need to know where to go shoot an elk' threads on this forum...
There are a few folks on here who have a hard time with the fact I have an 'advantage' over them if I ask for such suggestions. Although I don't really let it hold me back much, it does suck to only have one good hand sometimes and a fused middle back. The human body is pretty good at compensating for a lot of things though, and you could say that I truly believe in miracles.
I would trade this advantage for a fully functioning body in a heartbeat. I'll pull that area up on google earth and have a look.30-06 Hunter,
You have a disability waiver which gives you a tremendous advantage over everyone else in the state. You basically get the youth only draw tag every year. I understand that this is needed for folks who have a disability and cannot access the types of areas that non-disabled hunters can.
Here is my advice--go hunt the oak creek mountains open bull unit. There is a lot of vehicle access there for someone with a disability--more so than in the uintas which would be extremely difficult if not impossible for someone with a disability to hunt.
The open bull units around the oak creek would be a good area with lots and lots of roads to ride that lend themselves to a disability type hunt. If I was disabled I would be hunting there as I think I could find some success with plenty of scouting and the ability to get a vehicle close to most of the areas. I saw a few elk on one of these small desert hills across the highway from the sand dunes just a month ago while riding my motorcycle. No bulls but there has to be some I would think.
Good luck with your disability hunt, I hope that you can find some elk that are close to a road.
Point taken, I should have been more definitive with my wording.30-06, what irked me on this thread, and I don't think I'm alone, is that you posted it as a "hey guys, hypothetically speaking, if you could hunt a gs any bull area in the rut which would you?"
A hypothetical would be a situation where you had no ability or intention of hunting one of the areas proffered during the rut. In fact, you can hunt these areas at the end of the rut. This is where the post seems deceptive. Had you phrased it as "Hey guys, where should I hunt gs any bull during the rut with my disability waiver" you wouldn't have appeared deceptive and the responses wouldn't be calling you out on that.
Some might say 'more definitive.' Others might say 'less deceptive.'Point taken, I should have been more definitive with my wording.
They're talking about the areas outside the LE deer hunt boundaries.That's the first time I've heard someone say there is a lot of road access on oak creek. I spend a lot of time out there for deer. Not many roads at all and very little elk near any roads, just from my expierences.
