I have read many articles that recommend calling the local game biologist for an area and picking his brain, along with talking to other folks via phone for info on a unit. I have hunted elk for 20+ years but just switched over to archery. After two years of tag soup in a new unit I am thinking there may be something to this research idea, never done it before so where do I start? If any of you work the phone to research a hunting area, or drop in on a biologist, what types of questions should I ask? Besides, "Where will the elk be during archery season?"
Thanks for ALL thoughts and suggestions!
