I just got back from bumping/nile units and struck out after 5 days of non-stop hiking and glassing. Didn't even see an elk. My dad drew a any bull tag, looking to get our first big game together. Any advice with this weather moving in? Running out of ideas. We aren't afraid to put some miles in and burn some boot rubber.
Were you in the woods before daylight and out after dark?  Did you get to any high points and glass at sunrise?

Today I was headed for above tree level and the wind cut the trip short.  I glassed with the spotting scope until 9 30 coming up with 3 branched bulls and 30 cows/calfs. Mid day, I burned some leather and walked in thick timber turning up 2 more bulls and 15 cows and calfs. Find fresh tracks and scat and you'll know that there's elk there. :twocents:

Elk will be up and about in the thick stuff where they know they're safe.
Leave No Trace!
