The best time to hunt during the rut is usually middle of September, depending on weather conditions. It is at this time that individual hunt for trophy elk is organized, enabling the hunters to obtain high-quality trophies.
From October 1 to December 31 stalking, ambushing and flushing with dogs are permitted. In this term it is also permitted to hunt both trophy and non-trophy game, however, the probability of obtaining a trophy, especially in chasing, is much lower.
In the end of October – early November there is a good chance of stalking or ambushing a trophy elk in the feeding areas.
