western elk hunters

Never rifle hunted elk before,and am heading back out to try and fill my tag in Wyo.How would you guys hunt rifle elk in heavily hunted public ground during rifle.I know where they bed,feed and water but its all very close together;not much travel is necessary for them.I was thinking of just hanging out close to their bedding areas and waiting them out
anybody want to give their advice on how they gun hunt elk??I only have a few days to try and get it done
Thanks

Re: western elk hunters

I gun hunt elk by getting back further than the mass of public land hunters. I also camp further back than most. I have a two plus mile hike to where I sit.....but the elk will come Good luck and let us know how it went. Take LOTS of pictures.

Re: western elk hunters

Don't worry as much about where they are now....try to figure out where they want to go after the hunters put pressure on them. Usually Deep dark high places that keep most hunters away. Good luck
