Just started elk hunting in Idaho. This year we had an antlerless season in some units, ending shortly, started Aug 1. It was an over-the-counter (general) tag. I think there are some either sex general tags in other units but may be all bought up by now.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
