Just a question if you knock down an elk and your alone and someone walks up on you and asks which way they went would you tell them?

Would completely depend upon the circumstances and any individual encounters or run ins I had with said person..
 
Personal encounter I had years ago during rifle season in a nut shell. Took a buddy out for rifle elk. First time for him. Got to said spot behind locked gates early. Road only goes to 2 landings. Guy comes up on us in dark and doesnít acknowledge us until I say something. I try to get him to wait with us till daylight as I know there are multiple legal bulls in area. He Says no I have to go in there. Gonna meet my buddy? Iím like ok. Well he chose landing 2 we stopped at 1 and sat in the dark for 30+ min listening to elk walking around in clearing. At day light my buddy was able to kill his bull. Watched 2 more legal run off into timber. Mr I have to go meet my buddy comes running back down by us immediately after he heard the shots.. he asked me was there anymore? I said nope. Lone bull. Took another buddy back next day and was able to get him his first bull as well.

I'd wouldn't hesitate to let the stranger know which way the elk had went.  I have pass on info to others who inturn became  successful and down a animal.  I have also been told a an area which was holding animals and have been successful with downing a animal.  Things work out.

I can't think of too many reasons that I wouldn't.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

If I have an elk on the ground and I'm by myself. I would definitely give as much info to another hunter as possible to help them get their animal. Unless they give me good reason not to.

Ditto to Hunt and Fish.
Unless of course I had already told my hunting partners.

That is a tough one .So you tell him and he finds and kills a bull on your fairly small spot. Next year he shows up with 3 of his buddies. That *censored* happens! Finding a consistent elk hunting spot takes time and effort. Loose lips sinks ships!

I had a similar experience, I had a fairly nice buck in my spotter on a Public piece, guy came up with his son that was no older then 12, I told him hey, I got this buck spotted if you give me 10 minutes he will bed and we can get your boy on him. He told me ďthis is public land you canít tell me where to go or how to hunt, go f yourselfĒ and took off, so I went and shot the buck 🤷‍♂️
