    So I'm planning my first DIY elk hunt and trying to educate myself. But one question that I haven't really seen discussed much is where to set up camp.

    Sept, 7 day hunt, carrying everything on our backs. Just trying to be mobile until we can get into elk...

    Setting low in the basin seems to me like it would be a sure way to bump the elk out of a possible feeding area. And setting high I would think thermals would pull your scent down and ruin the basin also.

    So what are some strategies to camp locations?

    Here are some conditions for the place: safety: from people, animals, weather and terrain conditions; access to clean water, use it for cooking, drinking, bathing; the presence of firewood in abundance; communication opportunities: road, emergency transport, and so on, this list can be continued for a very long time, and in fact, so it’s better to read about it on the Internet, I listed the main ones here. The choice of https://dadanswersall.com/camping-clothes-essentials/ will also be an important factor. I recommend wool clothing - it has exceptional thermal properties, keeping your body warm. Boots are the preferred footwear because they protect your feet and have better grip on the soles.
