A majority of the elk will be rubbing now if not done just this week.   Basically if I could draw a curve it went from almost 99% velvet Last Sunday, almost 90% rubbed by yesterday. 
The curve for deer isnt nearly as steep.   They are obviously starting now, but there will be many in velvet by september 1.

That's good to see. I wonder if the high mountain mulies are doing it too? Seems every Sept 1 up there it's about 50/50.

My favorite sign of fall!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
