    I'd stay with plan A for the first several days and then go to your other plans if you aren't into a decent number of animals by then. They should be making some noise and helping you out in deciding whether you need to change and go lower with your alternative plans. Good luck!

    If forest service roads are low pack a spike camp in the 3 miles up high and let everyone below you push the mature bulls up to timberline. I have gotten to the point that I only hunt timberline areas for elk during September. I can hike into basins away from everyone else and I see a lot of elk. Every year I hunt muleys up high during September and have a late rifle bull tag I am pissed at myself because of the nice bulls I see that time of year up high. I am talking 10,500' and higher.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    Check out Mike Eastman's book on elk hunting. Great read to refresh yourself before season and Mike's reads are always entertaining.

    I read it a few years ago, planning on blowing the dust off and reading again. Thanks
