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.
Ya gotta be tough when yer dumb!
