Video: The 5 Phases of Elk Hunting — PRE-RUT

Randy Newberg’s “The 5 Phases of Elk Hunting” series continues with Episode 2: the PRE-RUT.

From Newberg:

“To be successful elk hunting, you need to find an elk. To do that, you need to understand the needs of elk and where they go to satisfy those needs.

In this series sponsored by Leupold Optics, Randy breaks down the 5 phases of elk hunting with easy to understand explanations. In this video, Randy focuses on the Pre-Rut phase. The main needs during this time and water, food, and breeding. This shifts from the beginning to the end of the phase, and breeding becomes the highest priority.

Generally speaking, this phase takes place during the first 10 days or so of September. Look for bulls near water and within a mile or so of where the cows are located. The cows are still going to be where the best food is in your particular unit or area.
