Looking for some advice. I am a first time elk hunter. My question is mainly about scouting. When you draw a tag in late spring. When can you start scouting the area. I will likely only get one chance to scout the area due to distance of travel. When can you expect elk to be in the area they will be during the season. I expect most elk move to winter rage in the areas I plan to enter the draw. Also I want to kill the biggest elk to ever walk North America, but would not pass any legal bull. So I am not talking about scouting for that one special bull.
