I don't know if they broke the law, don't know if they didn't. It will all come out in the wash.
But I will say if I ever got an elk tag, even if I hired a guide, and I doubt I would, I would want to be there through the whole thing. If the guides are out looking I want to be one pace behind them. If my health wouldn't let me keep up I'd be there by the truck watching and waiting. I would not want somebody to call me and say "we found your elk, come get it." and take a day to "relocate" it. That not the same as the hunter that was there every day and involved from the start. To me anyway.
Im an independent cuss and don't think I would enjoy being led. I have a friend that just always seems to know where elk would be found, or bear, or deer, or turkeys, and I would take his advice as to where to hunt and scout it best I could. If I ended up with my tag in my hand at least I had the hunt. The kill is the least of it all for me.
Not saying there is any wrong with somebody else finding your elk while your not even there, just saying its not a hunt I would want for myself.
Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.
