I know most will point me to the direction of Aron's article... I've read it a few times and I'm sure I will continue to read it. I've only hunted elk in the rut while they are bugling. I'd like anyone to discuss how you go about spot and stalk bivy hunting elk. Do you hike all the way to the top and start glassing then move? Or do you glass all day and try to map out the elk then try to ambush them in the morning? Or do you glass in the morning and wait till they bed then move on them? Many different factors go into early season elk and any of you more seasoned early season hunters chiming in would help! I look forward to the challenge of hunting silent elk in the high country this year, I'll save my fanatic bugling sessions for northern idaho in late archery. Any info is appreciated!
