area 4-20
« on: July 20, 2008, 01:31:14 PM »

Got a elk draw for Cranbrook/kimberley area. 4 20. Has anyone ever hunted in that region. Would hate to not be able to fill a tag because I don't know which area's to hunt.Any tips or help would be appreciated. This is my first elk hunt, and I want it to be successful

Maybe the reason there is this perception is newbies seem to be responsible for hacking the site. They were hacked just last night and lost about 2 days of posts before they could get the site back up and running. Be respectful and they are very helpful to "newbies".

Go online and get the antlerless elk limited entry hunt for zone X and buy a british columbia road atlas the back roads edition,MU 4-20 is a big zone with lots of area to hunt at or under the 1100 m elevation,there are plenty of elk up there,i suggest going a couple of days early and scout some of the many back roads,skookumchuck area is a good starting point,good luck.
