elk hunt 3rd season help

I am headed out tomorrow with my dad for a bull hunt and would love some advice for unit 511 as to where to start looking. I am hoping I can find my dads first elk. Thanks

Seeing as you have around 15

Seeing as you have around 15 hours now until first light I would say to toss a coin and see what you can find.  The best advise to you is to be ready to be moble.  The elk this year can be found just about anywhere in any unit from the very top to the lowest that they can go. 

If you haven't scoutted it yet this year you are up against the odds.

I did scout it. I hunted the same area during archery. I just am not real sure its a good area during rifle I have never hunted it during rifle. Also wondering if we are lucky enough to catch the end of the rut

The rut is done, but you may hear bulls bugling off and on. 

As I said stay moble, in my area the elk are still high and haven't moved down to the low country yet except for those that live on the golf courses.  If you don't see any in the morning then lace up your boots and cover some ground until you do.
