Walking up, pushing bull and cows
« on: September 09, 2021, 07:21:15 PM »
Question....


Relatively new to elk and hunting them in Northern Alberta Canada. Me and a buddy were walking and calling. And damn near stepped on a bull. (Exaggeration just in case) he stood around and watched us, he took off and came back a couple times. But thsn took his cows and slowly moved on.


Will he leave area? Or come back?

What time of day did this happen?

It sounds like he didn't spook too much so he's likely not in the next county/area but he could have a fairly large range as is and may still be miles away tonight/tomorrow/the next day etc.

If he hung around a bit and eventually wandered off I would say he isn't spooked too badly, but Elk Noob is right. He could be 2 mountains away and still be in his home range.
I would go back and hunt that area until you confirm he is gone and then I would look into other areas. I would probably start one or two drainages over and call to see if you can locate him or other elk again. They might not come in but they should be willing to respond to a call right now.
