If your scouting this time of year, I would shoot for the dawn or dusk hours. Elk tend to snooze more through the hot summer days and if you are hunting in thick cover you won't see as many (if any) since they just bed down.

Scope out the watering holes in the area too, some holes will have elk sign in and out.
