Thanks for the info Saskie. Unfortunately Fort a la Corne is a draw zone only, and I will be hunting the regular rifle season which starts Sept 13. I think I may start scouting up north of White Fox, near the flats along the Torch river, maybe speak to some of the locals. If you have any more ideas on where to go, I would really appreciate them. Thanks again.
I've heard good things from that area, especially north of Love. Find the old Grassy Lake fire tower and start scouting that area and along the river there. Historically north of Snowden/Choiceland used to have a herd long before elk hunting became "fashionable", I haven't lived there for 15yrs now, so my info is a bit out of date.
From the books that I have read, there is a lot of importance in knowing every nook and cranny of your hunting territory as well as the animal that you are hunting. So scouting as much as possible, just walking the land, will give you a good idea of what's around the corner or what's on the other side of a hill. Which can be very beneficial.
