People often laugh, when my first statement is, "To kill an elk you have to find an elk." Pretty simple. Simple enough for a simple mind like mine.

Not knowing how to consistently find elk was the biggest hurdle I faced in my elk hunting travels. And still the biggest challenge for me. Everything I do from the time I draw the tag until I am at the trailhead in the morning darkness is predicate on where I think I will find elk at whatever period of the elk calendar my tag is good for.

The greatest number of questions we get pertain to elk hunting. Most revolve around finding elk. Finding mature bull elk on public land is not easy, especially in the post-rut and late season periods.

In my experience, most of the question that arise when trying to find public land bull elk can be answered by explaining how we put together our plan for hunting when we get to the unit, or the process we call E-scouting. We usually have five days, often in a unit we've lever seen or hunted, and in those five days we must find and take a bull elk on camera. We need a plan for all five days we are there.

We released the first video this morning that is an overview of what the series will be like. It is about putting together a plan to consistently find bull elk on public land for whatever calendar period you will be hunting them.

We have filmed most of the content for this series and it looks like we will end up somewhere between 10-12 videos to fully explain how we build our plan by E-scouting. Hope you find some of this helpful.

I like to get back on GE as soon as I get back from a hunt to look at the areas I covered. It really helps you understand what you're looking at when studying new areas.
