Elk Hunting Tips & Tactics / So close
« on: October 01, 2019, 09:17:47 PM »
I have a private only tag and had a bull into about 25 yrds but couldn't get him over the fence to shoot. I raked, I cow called, I located, I was aggressive but he was weary. 

How do I get him the last yard? Any tips or tricks are welcome.

It was so cool though just doing that. Happy as I can be but hoping to take him down tomorrow.

Elk Hunting Tips & Tactics / Calling
« on: September 02, 2019, 06:19:37 AM »
How early do you start calling before legal shooting time?

This will be my first year calling. My wife is about to kill me and Ive been walking around with a diaphragm in my mouth for the last two months but Ive got a decent enough cow call down to at least not scare anything away.

Im hunting on private land and usually starting in a blind over water and/or meadow to start the day before getting on my feet. Im usually in the blind about 1 hr before and am curious as to when I should put the feelers out to see if Im in the right spot.

Thanks for your help.

I saw a discount for EXO during my review of UEH course, but when I went to enter it, it did not register on their website.  Is there something else I should be doing, or is the code stil valid?


General Elk Hunting / Elk Bedding Question
« on: March 23, 2019, 03:17:38 PM »
I have a questions about the area I am hunting in New Mexico in the Capitans (Unit 37).  I have acess to a private land hunt on two properties.  Both of these lands have water and are surrounded by Forest Service lands.  I have not seen any bedding areas on the northern poperty and I do not believe there are any.  The only place would be in the NE and NW corner of the property on the attached map.

I have a question about the general bedding areas you would think are likely on the attached map.  Im trying to determine where they might be coming from or going to once they hit the water tanks - so that i can determine the best set-ups. For one, I am on the south side of the ridge line for the Capitans.  So Im looking for N facing finger coming down or an E facing slope.  What I am noticing though is that the heavy timber areas primarily occur on W facing slopes.

Would it be likely that they would be on these western facing slopes or should I be looking in different areas? 

Any advice or ideas are welcome!
