Jim - You have made some good choices. That morning spot is a proven hot spot and the night stand will be new this year. Lots of good sign, we ll see what happens
Dave - That waterway is a deer highway Great Spot to see lots of deer!
hesseu - That staging area has sign everywhere. They seem to be holding up there before they head out to the bean fields. I have seen deer there throughout the afternoons also. I think they may come in there after breakfast and hang out.
Whitetail Nut - Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I set up in some of these spots
Bring them in on a string. I love this term, if you want to be successful on calling in Elk, try not to just sound like the other caller. We all laugh at each other when we are practicing Elk calling at home or while camping. When I first started calling in Elk, I had no idea what i was doing and it's funny how many I could call in. The biggest Bull that I have called in to date was actually my first. I was making cow calls and screwing it up big time. But it's obvious I didn't screw up...
