Overview

The Complete Book of Elk Hunting offers readers a close and lively look at the ways of elk and how to hunt them from veteran elk hunter and freelance writer Sam Curtis, who draws on more than thirty years of experience living and hunting in the heart of elk country and on contemporary elk research conducted by wildlife biologists throughout the range of elk distribution.

In The Complete Book of Elk Hunting you will learn that these are prime times for elk hunters. Elk numbers across most of their range are higher than they have been in a century. But high elk numbers don't necessarily mean high elk hunter success. Elk are wary, highly mobile animals that use their habitats to great advantage to elude hunts.

Through examples and anecdotes, Curtis thoroughly discusses the subtleties of understanding the different types of elk habitats, elk behavior within those habitats, and hunting tactics suitable for all weather and habitat conditions. The book includes an annotated illustration of where to find bull elk in the Rocky Mountain West, from the beginning to the end of the season, and a chart for forecasting elk whereabouts, depending on different weather conditions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
If you're going to hunt elk, you can count on putting out a lot of effort and probably a lot of money, too. Much better you know what you're getting into before you start, and there is no one better to learn from than Sam Curtis. He is a naturalist, a woodsman, and as I can tell you from personal experience, a hell of an elk hunter. Reading his book will not guarantee you success, but it will certainly tilt the odds more in your favor.—David E. Petzal, Deputy Editor, Field & Stream.
