I am going to archery hunt for elk next year. Does anyone have any good tips for units to put in for? I was looking at 22, 32A, 17, etc. but would like some people who normal hunt those units to possible give me some tips. Thanks for the help!!!!
Have you looked at the harvest statistics for units in Idaho. These can be very helpful when you are deciding which area is right for you. You can easily compare harvest success and trophy potential for each unit, then look at the actual statistics.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
