DENVER (May 23, 2022) – The special interest publication Volume II of North American Elk hits newsstands in June with features highlighting best tactics, gear and helpful content for hunters headed to the mountains in search of bull elk.

Recent studies have shown how elk are starting to outsmart hunters and Volume II of North American Elk wants to help hunters fill their tags with proven information for a successful hunt. The publication also offers stories about the impact wolves are having in the wild, as well as the reintroduction of elk in more than 30 U.S. states.

“Feel the excitement of the coming elk season in North American Elk, the only magazine dedicated to helping aspiring elk hunters in their pursuit of the King of Deer,” Editor Skip Knowles said. “Whether new to the game or a veteran of the mountains, North American Elk is designed from the ground up to promote success among elk hunters, all while building energy around the soul-stirring call of the West with the most beautiful imagery and top storytelling.”

  • WHEN THE ELK AREN’T THERE: Sportsman Channel host Fred Eichler explains how elk are where you find them…and how hunters shouldn’t get attached to a place due to past success, as it simply may not be where the elk are when the season opens. Have a backup plan.
