"4B archery elk advice"

So finally got drawn after 5 years of waiting, I was hoping to get some advice for the area. I was just up there scouting saw a lot of cows no bulls... "figure they will be deep till rut". I am pretty terrible at calling so working on improving every day driving in the car. Any good strategies? there is to much water on the ground to sit at a hole... which isn't my style.

Also any good guides for that area, we currently have two tags so it would be difficult to have one call and one hunt.
Thanks for any advice or recommendations. I'm new to the site but have found a lot of useful information.

I live in 4b. I've got buddies I'll be helping there so I won't give too much advice but if you're looking to just find a decent bull to shoot you don't need a guide. Lots of 300 class bulls in the unit. Don't worry about finding bulls now until they gather their cows because they will move a long ways. Do your best to sneak in with minimal amount of calling. Try not to cow call much if you're going for a herd bull. Cow call all you want if you want to shoot the first little bull that shows his face. Bugle to locate them and sneak in. Hunt the low country cedars and junipers. More big bulls hang down in the thick stuff so it's tough but worth it when you kill a big one.

Thanks for the great advice. I will keep that in mind about the calling I would have probably used more cow calls if you wouldn't brought up the herd bull thing.

I hunted 4b about 25 years ago. Unbelievably, it seems like just yesterday. I really dont remember any exact areas(sorry). What i do remember was how much fun i had there. My buddy and i drew and were into 6pt bulls every day. The terrain was flat and access everywhere was good. I wanted to hunt the lower cedars(for the monsters) but there was just to much fun to be had chasing bulls on top. We were rewarded with a 290" and a 340" bull. Good luck and have a great hunt!

Bone just wrote some of the best elk hunting advice you will ever read, and something I learned the hard way over the years.
