The past two weeks the elk have been talking their heads off but since Saturday they have stopped talking. I haven't seen any of the big bulls for about a week. Some of the cows are still together but no bulls. I did call in a small bull yesterday but he walked in quietly and I couldn't get a shot. Are the cows in that area already bred or have the hunters presence pushed the big bulls to shut up and hide in the thick nasty stuff? F.Y.I I'm in the NW part of the state.
