No trout about that JR. Yep You can sometimes fool an elks vision and ears, but absolutely never their sense of smell. Possibly the best point of light on this topic/thread.

Wind is everything

Hunt uphill from truck/ camp in morning, back down after the thermal shift.
Always a down hill haul out.
Bonus!
One shot. One kill!

Odds are against you for killing an elk from your sleeping bag.....  Seriously, if you're out in the woods there's always the possibility of tagging one.

Another pearl. If your hunting in Elktember, be out after dark locating and up and at em at the butt crack of dawn getting below them, working up into them, working the morning thermals.

Not only can elk smell you but you can smell them too. Use your nose!

Be aggressive.
Don't always call and wait.  Call and move, get where they don't expect you to be.

Lots of good info, now just put it all together where elk are.  But first, wait over 26 years to draw a tag, ok, just kidding.  My bit of advice, don't play the points game!!!  either hunt out of state OTC or hunt OTC in your own state, don't wait till your old to draw.  Agree, the wind is very important, but you need to be where elk are.
的n common with..... not so much!!

Hunt where the elk are NOW!

Persistence is a virtue. You may not see elk day 1-4 but on day 5 there they are standing in front of you so make the most of every opportunity. I'm a firm believer hard work trumps talent. And of course a little luck never hurts.
