    Might have to change my elk hunting plans next seasol and hunt closer to home.

    Jewel cave is just east of me, I live on the Wyoming - South Dakota border right where these elk are located. Or at the foot of the (Black Hills) Elk Mountain.

    If you chase the elk out of Wind Cave National Park onto National Forest land(they are getting too many in the park), this is the area they'll come to, lots of burned area with new grass that they are talking about in the article.

    I've been know to shoot deer and turkeys in my yard, might as well hunt elk from the back porch.

    I've been through there a few times on our way to Wyoming hunting and during a few trips turkey hunting in that area. It should be prime area for elk after that burn just like you said.
