I got drawn again in four years for bull elk. The last time in 6A and I shot a small 6 by 6. I'll use my same 270 winchester pre-64. I thought I had to tell someone,how lucky. Also I drew for mule deer in 23, these are AZ hunts.
Below the rim in the late season the elk come down regardless of weather in late October says Game and Fish. But some say the big bulls stay high all year. Both are right in my book. Scout a few weeks before and good luck!
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
