Summary of Material:
  • When J. Y. Jones decided to write a book on elk hunting, he went to the most reliable source for information-- professional elk guides and outfitters. He asked the experts careful questions on how best to hunt elk. This book is the result of his painstaking research and extensive interviews. Jones carefully selected twelve outfitters and guides from the Southwest desert to the Pacific coast with the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada in between, making sure he covered guides for every type of elk terrain and both major types of elk. He chose long-term elk guides who have almost three hundred years of combined guiding experience. To these men he posed questions such as, "What is the most common mistake elk hunters make?" and "What caliber should the elk hunter use?" Together with dozens more questions, the reader will get some of the most insightful thoughts and ideas on elk hunting tactics, elk behavior, best techniques, and elk lore that has ever been put into one book. All interviews are lengthy, and the answers are detailed. In these pages you will find literally centuries of experience in hunting elk, something you cannot find in a dozen other elk-hunting books combined. Who has not read endless repetition from self-proclaimed "authorities" on hunting everything from rabbits to grizzly bears? Elk are hard to get and tough to hunt, so you need every edge you can get, and in Ask the Elk Guides you will get more answers and ideas from the real experts then you are likely to acquire in a lifetime of hunting on your own.
