I am new to this site and would like to say this forum is really great. I am in a unique situation and I am looking for some direction. I live in Virginia and we have an opportunity to hunt elk in-state as a result of the stocking efforts of Kentucky. A few counties bordering Kentucky are supporting small elk populations on public land in mountainous terrain (elev 1500-5000 ft). The state game department allows elk to be taken following the same rules and regs and whitetail deer. I have a basic idea of where they are but I am clueless as to the general daily behavior of elk and do not have a heard located. Are their feeding, watering and bedding needs similar to deer? To find a heard, just keep moving with my nose in the wind? I am planning a multi-day hunt for the latter part of this month and I am trying to assemble a game plan. Any tips on scouting/locating would be greatly appreciated by this Easterner Newbie! Thanks!
