Re: What is the "difinitive" Elk-Hunting Reference(s)?
Although I have learned some from reading, I do not agree with most of what I read. The reason is I believe that every drainage, in every valley, in every area, in every state, has a different way to hunt, different levels of pressured elk, and mostly I do not believe any two hunter hunt the same way.
Spend every chance you can with elk, all year long, observing, listening, spooking, trailing and mostly respecting.
