i have been living in idaho for 4 years and would consider myself an above average big game hunter, however, i have not killed an elk yet.. ive chased the dang things all over the mountains with my bow but never have got to put one through yet.. i finally drew a tag this year in the same unit that i bow hunt, and i am so excited to shoot one of these big ba&tards!! i want to make sure that i fill this tag, so i was wondering if yall had any good pointers, or some things that work really well for you..
as far as calls i have a hootchie momma and a hyper-hot call.. i don't have a tube to bugle and was wondering if this is a must or not..
also, i have seen how they act during bow season and am wondering if i need to take up a different strategy because of the shooting and number of people that could potentially play a big part in the hunt..
i will do my scouting before hand a be very prepared, just looking for some pointers-- thanks guys......chad
