This is by far
the most exhilarating outdoor experience a bow hunter can enjoy!
Hunting bull elk in rut could be compared to turkey hunting. Those
that have experienced hunting a spring gobbler could say that
bugling elk are like hunting 800 pound turkeys! It is a thrill to
say the least! Dedicated deer hunters must arrive prepared for the
anticipation of a bull elk standing 15 to 50 yards away (bugling his
head off)…attempt to calm nerves and draw back your bow!

use during archery season are bugling, cow calling, sitting wallows
and game trails, and stalking.
Archery season usually runs from the first Saturday in September
through the first week in October. The middle of the season is
