Thanks for all the input everyone, I'm gonna get some molasses and Alfalfa tonight and hunt at first light again tomorrow morning. If no elk are around (like today) i'm gonna set up the cameras and set up the bait to try again.
If i shoot a elk and it wanders off then i will go knock on doors like ethical hunters are suppose to do. The owner knows all the neighbors and there friendly towards eachother.

In my experience salt does absolutely nothing for west side elk. Has to be some type of valuable food source that makes them want to be there over other options. Its possible they are getting good feed elsewhere such as a clover agg field or something. If thats the case you might be out of luck because its hard to pull them away from that stuff

I'm westside and have tried almost everything. Apples #1. I knock on doors and carry buckets all summer and go through hundreds of gallons all for free. Best places are homes that have apples sitting under the tree. Most of the time you are doing them a favor by cleaning up the apples. #2 Whole corn NOT cracked. Cob molds and turns to mush plus they don't care for it as much as straight corn so save your money. You can get whole corn at Walmart sometimes this time of year for $13 for 50#. BassPro has it for $10. Tractor supply has it but it's twice as much I think. You don't need to add anything to the whole corn. I've done piles of corn with stuff like apple mineral and without. The deer and elk both prefer the straight corn. Another thing they both like is the horse alfalfa pellets but don't care for alfalfa hay. They like growing alfalfa and growing winter rye. Planting winter rye early fall would be a homerun for late season.
