Elk Tag

 

I was recently drawn for a ND Elk tag, Any Elk,  looking for recommendations or names and numbers of people to contact who would know where to find elk, or who would let me hunt their land. I have a tag in Unit E2, and able to hunt all of E5. Any help or guidance is greatly apprecaited. Im pretty excited, and just looking to fill my tag. 

Thank You, Becky

Now if you listen to most

Now if you listen to most people on here they will tell you get a good pair of boots and start scouting. My Daughter and Son and myself all had tags. And never once did we put are boots on and start scouting. If you have a good pair of field glasses ( bino's ) you can see more in 10 mins then you can walk in 3 days. I seen my kids and my Elk from over 2 miles away. And we all shot very nice Bulls.

 

My Dad had his Elk lic in E2. and I found them by the river. And place there crop land is where I would look.

You really disagree with that?

Yes I do, I have been on lots

Yes I do, I have been on lots of Elk hunts out there and have seen every Elk anywhere from 1/2 mile to close to 3 miles. Everyone has been from a high spot glassing.

 

Were you taking pictures of your boots and camo pants??

Or the Elk track that is how old, one day or 10 days.

 

I have been on lots of hunts and a good set of glasses will see more animals then walking

You can pm me. I found some

You can pm me. I found some elk last season in 1 spot. I hunted in several areas and talked to a lot of people including my uncle who delivers fuel all around the killdeer area and they were extremely hard to find. I wish you luck.

up for bid

you know Game and Fish would be better off just putting these tags up for bid, its not hunting if you have to always ask for help, same as fishing, everyone asks "where are you catching them" or the say "let me know when the good bite is on".  I agree and disagree with the scouting, scouting can be right next to the road or in most cases you need to scout to get to a point miles off the road to view what others aren't viewing from the road.  So strapping on some boots can have a couple different meanings.

scout scout scout scout scout

scout scout scout scout scout scout... that's my advice.  I spend 3 months scouting when I drew my tag and finally a week before season saw my first elk. It's not easy. Talk to landowners, what the worst that could happen, they say NO?   Expect to hike WAY off road to find these critters, not just standing next to the road. Lots of preparation ahead of time will ensure for a more succcessful hunt.

Sometimes I aim to please, but mostly I just shoot to kill !

I'd ask for help along with scouting, but still ask around. Like on fishing "buddy". I asked around and scouted and eventually found some elk, it was a lot of driving, walking, glassing, and work.  Most people don't have time to scout for 3 months so ask, ask, and ask again. The badlands are beautiful so the walks and glassing is worth every second. Ask around also. Bidding these tags isn't necessary. And just remember, while your out scouting on your spare time, ask around. Ask
