    You can :
    -Make a taxidermy mount there-and get it shipped to your address as other ppl say(truck,train,bus)
    -Cut off the antlers with a piece of skull and split it in 2(clean the bone 100% from anything which is organic, best by boiling and scraping off)split antlers I believe is the term. Dry it, package it in a duffle bag(with your gear )and fly home. Here you can make a mount,with a piece of material and a wooden plaque.If done properly-it is really nice.
    -Make an European mount there, fully completed with boiling,and bleaching the skull with peroxyde. Custom package it with a lot of hard cardboard, secure with about 2 rolls of duck tape ,and ship it as your 3-rd baggage allowance on the plane,at about 100$ .This way it is always with you-no worries about being lost ,delayed etc .Plus-you can admire your own workmanship.
    Remember-fly WESTJET, no one else will fly animal antlers for you ,as such....They will take really good care of your trophy, and nothing will happen if you REALLY package it solid.

    Thanks for the response. Flew with West Jet last time around and wouldn't fly with anyone else. I'm hoping to have it done in a European mount, but I guess we'll see when / if the time comes

    Looked at regs, the Three Sisters is actually in 408 WMU. Looking at the regulations everything is draw there. Non-resident is almost impossible to get a draw until the third year of applying. Elk is 6 point or better. Deer and mule is all draw. If you are native, then hunting on your own reserve is permitted, don't get caught outside of that without having permission from the lease holders. Although this is a federal law, it is strictly enforced here.

    All that said, the country is very nasty, so you have to be in shape, very good shape.

    Think it would be safe to say that Three Sisters is out. Everything will be checked and double checked as far as hunting WMU boundaries before I head out. Not knowing what area, as of yet, that we will be hunting in makes it very difficult to plan ahead. Hopefully I will have that information soon and I will go from there

    I'm sure you will follow the rules, We use "Backroad" maps to get our borders for which WMU is best. There is a herd back in breeder valley in between the Whaleback and The Waldron I think it's part of Bob Creek. Six point and better. There are no motorized vehicles allowed, so either hiking or Horse. The trek is about 15 miles, so a very long day. We go in on horse, and the WMU is 308.

    This year we are hunting 429, 326,328 WMU's the latter part of October. Base camp will be in 429. I use a .308 in a Savage 99 for Elk. I have a thing for lever actions. The only Elk I have shot was 27 yards with a bow out of the saddle in the Waldron. Elk went 5 yards and dropped. It was a 5x6. Also you need to be hunting with a partner not just for legalities, but for safety. Taking a shot is like ringing a dinner bell to a Grizzly Bear. Give me a call....we'll talk

    You have to look at which WMUs allow hunting of Elk without needing to draw and then plan from there.

    I'm likely going out this fall to hunt with my uncle. I am going to try for mule deer myself.

    WMU 339 would be good for you, unless you want to go into 440 or 316. 440 is the willmore wilderness, you would have to really research the area before you hunt there.
