    Did anyone hunt the Kootenay for elk in 2019 that can provide feedback? I would like to plan a rut hunt with my two nephews during 2020, however during my research I read that the southern Kootenay elk population has taken a huge hit over the last ten years and been reduced by almost 50%. All hunter and outfitter feedback appreciated.

    Yeah I saw that article and couple other similar ones and that is what raised my concern. I was hoping to see some reports from hunters who had actually been there recently or outfitters who guide the area.

    There is another report on what they changed last year.
    I hope someone can give you the information you are looking for.
    Family members have been using those Cow tags for a few years reducing the herd.
