Mt. Emily ElkContributors to this thread:
As a NR, not sure why I decided to start applying in Oregon back in 1998. But with 20 points, yesterday I finally drew a tag. Didn’t think so at first. But then got an email from ORDOW. This is the only tag I drew in any state this year. So I’ll be hunting the full 4 week season if necessary. I'm hoping I won't need to backpack, as during my long wait I acquired a pacemaker. This makes it hazardous to the pressure of a strap on left shoulder. Looking forward to visiting your state.
Congratulations on a great tag! I can’t help you much but if you can’t carry a pack that should be okay until you kill an Elk then you will need lots of help.
Ya this will be only my second hunt with the pacer. Only other one was a WY mule deer hunt last year, where I did not connect. I used to backpack hunt the high country a lot for 20 years previous to the surgery. Will have to figure for this. Hopefully there's some packers I can connect with prior to the hunt.

Great tag. Good luck. I'd start looking for a packer now. The longer you wait the harder to find one and more expensive its gonna be. Post some pics if you get a bull down.
wondering how the hunt went? really good tag, worth a story.
