hello everyone im new to the forum but love it already! Only been browsing a few mins and i can tell there is lots of good info on here. that being said i had some questions i thought id just throw out there for some advice. I recently bought my first bow because i really want to get into archery hunting. Im a newbee in all aspects of it. although my shooting is progressing quickly. I applied for an eastern oregon elk hunt (ches nimmnus) with a party and actually ended up getting it. didnt think it would happen because we got it last year after appllying for 4 years or so. So i was supprised when we got it back to back years. I missed last year due to some military training so i was of course slightly heart broken. So my plan for this season was archery hunt the oregon coast. But now im torn between taking the tag for rifle hunting in eastern oregon. Assuming i can not take the tag and then buy a general archery hunt tag? So i guess my question is "what would you do". Take the eastern oregon rifle tag and hunt for a week... or start out archery season on the coast and hunt off an on for a month? Any and all suggestions, advice, stories, etc would be very much appreciated. Thank you any and all for your time and thoughts!
ps. rifle deer hunting in eastern oregon this year
