Elk Hunting Tips & Tactics / Re: Solo archer set-ups
« on: May 03, 2018, 09:21:59 PM »
the tactic to use will very depending on time of rut , also plays a roll is bull to cow ratio, weather, time of day,age of the bull you are calling  and so many other things , no mater what tactic you use it will be wrong the majority of the time but keep trying and that 1 in 10 time makes it all worth it.

spend the money and take the UEH online course and you will be years ahead of most beginners, If you really plan on elk hunting it will be well worth the money

been using the Yamaha grizzly for the past 15 years and its been flawless over 8000 hard miles, and plan on getting a Polaris Rzr side by side this year, If I was going to get a new 2up it would probably be a Can-am  , what ever brand you get make sure its a 2up or your going to be screwed if you ride in Montana and look up the law passed in 2007 it covers a lot of dumb stuff like how much weight you can carry such as you cant carry more weight than is labeled on the racks of the bike which means you cant legally carry a deer on most bikes and they are giving fines for it .

General Elk Hunting / Re: Archery vs Rifle?

archery in the rut any time for me, but its about you if your going for the experience than archery for sure if you think you have to kill something to make it a hunt then go rifle but that late in the season it could be very cold and less elk left to find ,could be a less enjoyable hunt

Hunting Gear / Re: Any advice on good hunting boots
« on: August 01, 2016, 08:07:11 PM »
last year I took the plunge and got Kenetrek boots, they did great, verfiy good at staying warm and extremely good for comfort and water proof , the only complaint is they could be a little better for traction in wet snowy side hill conditions. my wife got hers this year and not yet broken in but so far she loves them . expected life of these boots from people i talked to is 5 to 10 years so they are not bad priced considering.

I took this pic this past spring with the camera i bought for spotting , pic was taken from apx 1 1/2 miles away

I cant even remember the last time I took an elk with a hunting partner , its got to be close to 15 or so elk ago, Either way keep in mind there are a lot of variables , time of the rut , bull with or without cows, age of bull, ( bull to cow ratio, one of the most important), morning ,midday or evening. they all play a factor, no one method covers it all . Unfortunately you learn from close calls, there will be lots of them ,Good luck.

I use to wear the Irish setter Mountain claw the most comfortable and by far the best traction boot I ever had but they would be worn out in one season every time and they quit making them.  last year I got the Kenetreks and they did good there only weak spot is traction, not to bad but did not compare to the traction of theMountain claw and they should last for years so there less expensive in the long run

brand I don't have the answer but its defiantly 10x42 for me, But i also use them for deer hunting and need to score a deer form up to 500 or600 yards . for his next year I bought a new camera that has 50x optical zoom so for those animals out to a mile away i just take a pic and check it on the camera

In prerut and very start of the rut like you mentioned the odds are very good that they will return to the same area with in a day or two, once the elk heard up in the rut they may be in the same spot latter that day or they may move miles . this is were the variables come to play.

Awesome as usual, counting down the days, Makes me feel better knowing that after 36 years of bow hunting I'm not the only one making those small but game changing mistakes.
