Elk down low this year in Unit 20?

I set up my camera on my land in Unit 20 at 9K', just to plan for the start of deer season Sept 1st (priv land license). Anyway, I pulled the pics off after 5 days and found this!  Sure a nice elk, but down low for this time of year???

That is a nice bull.  One

That is a nice bull.  One thing that I have learned in 40+ years of hunting them is that they are where you find them either high or low.  I know that the area that I am planning on bow hunting this year the bulls and majority of the cows are hanging around 8,000 ft where as the top of the hill is close to 10,000.  But then I have always found them anywere from the top of the hill to the bottom.  That's why you need to find them and watch them to see what they are doing if the elevations that you hunt them on changes very much.  There is nothing set in stone.
