The elk have been allusive this year. Probably because the poachers are using elk calls around us. When the area of the calling doesn't move for two to three hours and is in the same place night after night that is a pretty good indication that the elk are leaving the area due to heavy hunting of them. Elk will graze and move along and poachers will sit in the same place and call and call to try lure elk to them. First year we have had few elk around this time of year..and we believe the reason is poachers since there is no hunting in our community.
