A Guide School Student's Journal


elk hunting training

DAY 16 - Tuesday

Finally getting into the hunting part of things. Started with lecture/discussion on what elk see/hear/smell and how to keep them from sensing your presence. Also discussed how to better use our own sense of sight, sound and scent as hunters and guides.

After that we rode up into elk country and practiced bugling set-ups at elk wallows (hunter/guide positioning using wind, travel routes, available cover and available or self-made shooting lanes).
Spent entire rest of the day practicing still hunting, bugling and set-ups.
