Who likes to focus on covering a lot of ground in the rut to find bulls that are hot?
Do you bugle mostly from ridges or dropping into basins/canyons? I think that ridge calling allows you to cover the most ground but can be a bit too far from elk locations to draw responses. Thermals also can be an issue with early morning ridges.
Do you incorporate some spot and stalk during prime times also? I like to have some nice vantage points to glass, even if it's a short time, so all my eggs aren't in the calling basket. I'm thinking about doing more run-and-gun though. Randy Newburg on his q and a said he mostly doesn't worry about glassing during the archery season.
Thanks for your thoughts.
