    When I lived in the koots I always had action opening week. Also a week before it with bow but bow can be frustrating cause they hang up or you see them and they are to far and then they are gone. Killed a few in October too in the Koots. They still bugle but they don’t come in cause the legal bulls all have a herd. Best strategy for me has been interception from bed to feeding. Elk tend go up the hills to bed and down the hills to feed. It is not often the top of a mountain either. They can bed between cutblocks part way up the mountain, in the dark cool timber.
    Had great action the last week of the season too in the EK. If the snow is deep they herd up in the low country. If not they could still be way back in hills. Unfortunately there is way less elk there now from what I hear so it could be a bigger challenge.

    If you go north they are often in the aspen, near river valleys. Also in the north less antler restrictions iirc. I live in northern Alberta now. We are fortunate to have a season that goes all the way to Nov 30. Hunting in the snow helps to pattern them big time.
    The easiest hunt is on the farmland fringe. Hunt for sign fresh sign and figure out their pattern. Get in the right position or if your low on time then track to their bedding. Best done with a buddy to parallel from the side if you jump them before you see them. 1 of you may get a shot.
    Elk hunting is a great time, and the meat is excellent.

    Re: Elk knowledge

    The area I'm planning on going, I've seen lots of Elk in the farmers fields at night during deer session mid October, but that's low down in the valley. There's lots of food, cover and water there without any roads, but it isn't a huuuuge area.

    If it's warm out, should I be looking at higher elevations? The close by mountains are very steep up front, but it looks like good habitat up top and behind.

    Re: Elk knowledge

    If its warm out they will bed in dark timber on the north or east slope. They can travel from those fields in the dark way up that mountain about 10x faster than you or I could, they walk a few ks in no time. Are there any creeks flowing down the mountain side?
    Find the trails and routes and post near them. Pay mind to the thermals. The bulls will often sound off for up to an hour before the herd get up and goes down for dinner. Don’t respond with bugles, he may go somewhere else, imo they are doing that to find out if there are hunters down there.
    The elk will be where the best feed is. They are suckers for crop or cut grass /alfalfa. They eat leaves like willow, alder and aspen when the frost turns them.
