I saw this on another board and found it to be very interesting. There is alot of tatics that can be used but what is really interesting is the extreme tatics people use.I dont have many but heres a few I learned while hunting in AZ.....In AZ on a dry year Elk really go to water, mostly cattle tanks. The problem is you dont know if they are always going to hit your tank. The best way I have found to solve this problem is you should put detergent in all the tanks in the area. This really forces the elk to go to your water. One problem with that is , it can be pretty obvious to other hunters or even worse a game warden. So in cases where I want to be extreme but dont want to get caught, I like to buy about 100 air fresheners. You just find the really stinky ones, like cinnamon or roses and hang them all over the trees around the tanks. Be sure they are hanging around the height of an elk and remember make sure they arent in plain sight. If you have competition from other hunters in the area, like they beat you to your tank, I like to send them a message that you are a serious competitor. If they are using a ground blind that they spent hours building, I really anjoy torching it. This really pisses people off and tends to keep the elk away from the tank. The elk smell the smoke and whammow they are at your honey hole. If you are in a dry area this could easily backfire because you could burn the whole forest down. So make sure you take the neccessary precautions. If you cant burn them out, then I like to send them a message by taking a nice big dump in the blind. If your lucky they will get in there before light, and surprise their whole morning is ruined!....These are just a few EXTREME TATICS I've learned along the way, if you have any questions or would like to discuss some of your own, please feel free to post. I'm glad I got to share and remember Its not hunttin if your not cheatin!
