I just recentley moved to the helena,Mt area, so this will be my first year bowhunting in MT...Ive always bowhunted in Idaho, Some people here have been saying you have to hunt around 8000ft to be into elk aournd here so thought id get some opinions! So In montana do the elk stay typically in the high country during the first parts of semptember or will they move down or if even if there is any realationship with elevation and finding elk in early september.

Any Insight would greatly be appreciated!!!
