It's early June and we have nearly three months to go before we can hunt elk, so lets have a respectful and friendly discussion. I believe tree stand hunting in archery season is the single most effective means for most hunters to legally shoot elk on public land. With a good location, stand placement and a little patience you can harvest an elk more often from a tree than any other way. It takes me on average about 10 days to kill my elk, but on some years I pass on several before I ever draw on one. What do you think on this matter and why?
