Not sure...there is no season for them yet, and I am told never in that area.

You may have to ask Terry Nelson subsistence hunter extraordinaire (aka Roseau River Band Chief)

True, and are good dedicated hunters, better then the first nations. I know one too, good friend actually, he did good this fall so far (but at least he hunts with a bow only)

That last photo was taken last thursday (Sept 27th) I was bow hunting and walked within 50 yards of that very spot only 10 minutes prior to that photo being taken.

Wooah...step back a second. A native hunter using a bow!!??!!?? How many hundreds of years has it been since we heard that. Amen to that guy for following traditional hunting practices. You can try and shoot all the elk you want with a bow, that how herds used to remain stable!! Hallelujah a break through. (Finish rant). Wonderful elk pics by the way.

The area is a big area...depending on where the fire goes I suppose. They are on my quarter but nobody here knows where that is. And hopefully people on a Hunting Forum are hunters not poachers...maybe I am naive.

The area is not as big as you may think. Don't you think the locals don't know where these elk are?? They've been there for years, and the poachers know where they are also...yes you may be naive

You're not being naive! In today's world there are very, very few secrets and even those don't last long. The good thing is that some of those elk are on private land, which by law cannot be entered upon without landowner permission. So long as landowners do not give permission to enter onto their property to people intent on killing those elk, they have a good chance of increasing in numbers. By the same token if a landowner wants to give permission to subsistence hunters to enter onto his/her property to hunt elk and the numbers are there to sustain a certain harvest level then that is his/her business and nobody else's! Tough to accept but those rights are guaranteed by law!
