2010 Archery Question

When should i plan on my 7-10 day hunt? Before ML season or after? I understand there will be some overlap either way, so maybe i should ask which is better, early or late September? I'll be hunting public land, OTC, big commitment hike wilderness areas.

Rut tends to be later in the season. Hunting early can be nice too, as the wapiti are doing their normal daily activity and aren't spooked yet.

I would hunt the later season, especially if you are new. The last weekend of muzzleloader season through the end of archery season is the best time to be out.

2010 Archery Question

In the begining of sept. you can sit on watering holes ( tanks, wallows ) if it is warm and dry, this is a little easyer hunt and the elk are calmer. After ML season the elk usually head deep onto rugged cannons away from all the road hunters/pressure and are much moor warry. But when you get onto a scream fest of bugles its well worth the pac in, on the last ten days of sept.
