    I was lucky enough to draw an south Dakota elk tag this year. This is my first chance to take an elk and my question is what is the best way to hunt elk in the post rut? The season runs the length of October any help is appreciated thanks.

      I still think knowing the land you are hunting on is the most important thing.

        I know the area I have deer hunted and logged the area most of my life just never for elk. Drawing the tag is a feat in its self. Thanks for the advice

          Congratulations! They should still be rutting in October. Cut the distance between bull heard and yourself. Use the wind. Use cow elk wimper/shriek to seal the deal.

          Send me some jerky. thanks!
