Yes; elk, deer, and bear eat the acorns. Hunting it can be somewhat of a love/hate thing. :wink:

Well, I guess I might have to try it again as I only got to experience the hate :wink:

I'm very familiar with oak brush. It's of the devil.

I will say once elk are spotted it isn't hard to get close but just realize you more then likely will not get a shot op, 2 years my buddy and I stalked in on a heard of 13 and there was a nice 5x5 in there. I had a calf come up with in 10 yards of my calling and he had the 5x5 at 23 yards with only it's head visible, no shot op and we had them at this distance for 45min.

I also had a bear come in and a bull moo cow, just say I'll take a pissed off bear over a pissed of bull that moo's any day in the oak brush. I grew up on a ranch and have only seen hate in an anime eyes like that once with a cow that was plain nuts.

So the love is the action, the hate is the poor shooting lanes.

Was that were I think it was?
Yup...
The area was cool. The company was even better:)
But the Oak Brush...OMG!
I couldnt move two feet without getting hung up, or making a TON of noise.
Still have Cactus stickers in my palm when I fell after getting tripped up by Oak Brush lol...
You definitely have to learn(quickly) where you can go,and where you should'nt!
