Also known as Olympic Elk, these enormous beasts haunt the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest from California to the Alaska Panhandle. Growing to be almost half a ton in weight and nearly ten feet long, they are the size of a small horse and among one of the great bucket list deer in the world. While in past years it has been extremely hard to luck into a Roosevelt on a hunt, decades of steady conservation practices have brought their numbers up to where even California has a brief but viable season on these huge creatures. While guides offer the best chance of success, non-resident hunters on public land in Oregon still have a shot during what they term “Coast Bull Elk” season.
