Love the artical Robby. I have found some great elk spots on winter range. One area was totally overlooked by me and everyone else. I found them by chance during archery season one year. It actually was quite loaded with them everyone hunted the summer habitat that is phenomenal and has an excellent herd. They all go to this low country with a lot of mahogany for winter. Then seemingly migrate to picture perfect elk habitat. But I found a lot actually stay including some of the best bulls. They spend most of the day in the mahogany and usally come out late with the heat of the day so they aren't easy to pick up. Often they dont come till dark unless there is a bit of weather. Interestingly enough the biggest buck I have scouted to this day was on the same winter range .
