Ive found that deer around here will usually keep doing the same thing until they are ran off. I've watched the same buck every night for well over a week feed in the exact same spot at the same time. As far as the elk are concerned they are a little less reliable but they will hit the same spot on a regular basis too usually every week or week and a half but if they are pressured all bets are off, they just leave the county then. I live on a pretty big chunk of land that borders BLM land and have spotted a huge 7X7 three times now, he is the biggest elk I have ever seen in person :shock: . He is about 4 miles from my house, its a pretty rough hike but would be worth it. If he gets any pressure from hunters he should just end up closer to my property, as they have probably never been hunted here. I hope to get a shot at that big boy, it would be a once in a lifetime bull, but I won't get my hopes up too much, I've been hunting elk too long and know better.
