Elk hunting with thermals

Here is a tip submitted by Kevin Paulson from Huntinglife.com

When hunting elk there is no need for scent control! Walking up and down
mountains with a scent lock suite or carbon suit is only going to get you
covered in sweat. Chasing elk is hard work and if you want to be successful
you need to learn how to hunt with the wind and to watch the thermals. In
most situations in the morning and once the sun goes down, the thermals are
going to be headed down the mountain. During early morning once the sun
hits the valley floor, the thermals are going to change and come rushing up
the mountain. If you want a bull during archery season you are going to
have to place yourself to the left or right of the elk herd.

Very tricky hunting when trying to get a elk. Great tip, knowing how to position yourself with the wind is key to getting your elk.
