Best Hunting Time For Elk

by Nick Bruder
(Taber, Alberta, Canada)

The best time to spot elk is at 1st light, when the sun first hits the horizon. It seems to get them moving faster to there bedding areas. The sun light hits there bodies and they seem to stand out more.




You are quite right Nick. In the early morning hours the sun gives the Elk a brilliance of sorts. I believe one of the reasons you'll find the Elk in these open areas at first light is they come out to warm themselves by the sun. I have no scientific evidence for this, just my own thoughts.
