    I was thinking about this today and I realized my final choice 9 times out of 10 comes down to relationships. When my kids were younger, I picked units I could hunt from a truck or short hikes so they could be involved, glass with me and be a part of the kill. We'd rent a cabin and hang out in the evenings. Today I asked my wife. Her eyes lit up when I talked about a hunt chasing bugling elk. Even though it would be my tag, she said that would be a blast chasing elk in the rut. I know she likes warmer weather too.

    Rut or wintering area for elk, which would you choose?

    Or maybe u could comment on how the recently released mrs section has impacted your application choices. Since this is a family forum I will refrain from commenting

    Umpqua Hunter,

    I'm going to use my Utah bonus points on a rut hunt. It's exciting to hear those big boys bugling. So I'd recommend rut hunting.

    I'm with you on that in Utah. In Utah the rut hunts are phenomenal. I think we are in the same point pool in Utah.

    I'm going on a late season bow hunt for elk in a couple of weeks. I will let you know of my opinion hunting elk in sub zero temperatures vs hunting the rut in fall.
