Get to a vantage point and glass, early and late then move in.
Been checking area elevations, migration info, resident herd info, typical snowfall, etc etc etc.
My only problem is that I want to find a place that is open because I don't have a problem taking up to 600 yards at my current skill level. Being an old artillery observer, I could spend all day in one spot glassing. (Actually spent quite a few days in that mode, but I wasn't elk hunting at the time).
My buddies are Cooperists to the extreme and would prefer to sneak up to "shiv" range if possible. I'm trying to find an area that gives them some aspens and me some open ground.
I've been over so many orthophotgraphy maps and terrain models, I'm beginning to stare at women and wonder what they look like from a satelite view.
