I have purposelyleft the elk alone other than trying to ambush them .....

Good luck you guys!

hahaha yup Greg, elk are hunted a lot different for the most part than what you are used to as a whitetail hunter. Vocalizing with them, stalking, moving on the ground making noise,covering miles of ground normally on every given dayetc.. But when you do that TOO EARLY in the rut...you take the chance of running the herd out of the area, they dont stick around or hang out in a small 1000 acre area, they will cover miles and miles to a safe area and out here they have endless country to hide in....if they need to move due to pressure....they can and will do it a matter of minutes up and over mountains.... so what I was referring too is that I have totally refrained from pushing the elk herds I have been hunting....(3 different herds)only setting up and trying to ambush them as they move from bedding to feed, basiclly Very low pressure comparedto normal elk rut hunting methodsand I have had elk day after elk walk by me these past 20 days, either just out of bow range from my ground blinds or in range but not the animal I want. I had a young bull at 3 yards on film.. let him walk.. all the time never once spooking them ...while they were coming by me.. So as I woke up this morning to bugles down the canyon I am happy to say I haven not run them out of the country as many bowhunters do that push them too early.. they are just starting to get into the rut here, Ryan it timing the RUT/aggressive method of hunting them perfectly. We have a big weather change in the forcast starting Sat.. it should be excellent hunting.
That's a huge tremendous plus right there!! Good luck you two!!
