i am heading out this long weekend in search of elk #11, the cooler weather could make things interesting. with the high cost of fuel ect. i am hoping that any and all of you bugle boys would be interested in sharing information on the rut as it progresses; hitting the right time is critical as i'm sure you'd agree and getting out at the best time can be tricky, so if i hunt i will share with all of you my observations and i will report truthfully. if some of you do the same we could all benefit.

spent three days looking for elk and from what i saw they are ready to rut! it's been a long time since i've seen this much sign this early. i even found a few big rubs but the bulls were absent and are making it tough for old el sparko.

tried another area found one fresh rub and it looks like the quadders took over the area this summer. mr. elk may have moved on...

Went out last night to see if I could get a response. Had a 5X5 come in right away, but he was on the wrong side of the creek. He hung around for awhile, but never made a sound. Went back this morning, didnt hear a thing.:rolleyes:
