In almost all of the western states the archery elk opening week is warm and the rut has not gotten into full swing.  Mike Jenkins has spent time in the NW, Alaska, and the SW states of NV and AZ.  His experience in the SW states fine tuned his expertise for locating elk in warm weather.  Many people wait until later in the season to chase elk when the weather cools and the rut is in full swing.  He has found that you if you choose to do that you may miss a time when the elk are concentrated in smaller areas due to the warm weather.  That makes them easier to locate and many have not been pressured yet so they are still going about their relaxed daily routine.  Mike spends a lot time working to locate these areas and then closes in on the elk when the season starts.  We talk about his tactics to consistently harvest elk in the tough conditions so you can hunt regardless of what the weather is at the start of the season.
