252D Starkey Exp Forest One Bull Elk Oregon

Was wondering if any of you guys have hunted the Oct rifle hunt in the experimental forest for bull elk? What kind of success did you have and what was the quality of animals that you saw deer, elk....etc?

I have heard rumor that they point out where the animals are when you are hunting in the exp forest and get them off the fences with snowmobiles? Any truth to that?


Waiting for a few more preference points to make my way into the forest

I've never hunted the exp forrest but i do hunt the starkey unit. I've heard there are some nice trophy animals inside the fence. but its considered high fence hunting so you cannot enter the animal into B&C or P&Y books. I havent heard of the snowmobile thing but they do allow atvs in certain areas and you must have gps on the atv and on yourself(for research according to ODFW).
