What I would do is to go to the DOW's hunt planner and pull up all the maps for the youth any bull hunts.

Then pick the one closest to where you live where you can scout it all summer to find where they are hanging out at.

From what I have heard the youth any bull hunt can be a very tough one no matter what unit.

Lots of people stick to the atv trails in soap stone. I know where elk usually go after being pressured there but I wouldn’t even share that information with my best friend. People will be tight lipped in regards to specifics and understandably so.

Best advice I can give is to get out and scout, setup trails cams, spend time in the unit, use the scouting time as bonding time too, your kid will love it.

Good luck, it’s the most difficult hunt I’ve ever been a part of.
Try not to put too much pressure on yourself or your son to shoot a bull, just go out and spend some time with your son and make memories. Then if you do see some bulls and have opportunities, that’s the icing on the cake.

Literally shoot any bull you see. Don't try and be a hero.

^this.

Itís always amazing to see how many dads out there think their kid just pulled a SJ early rifle rut hunt and expect to see bulls behind every tree. Just today I was talking with a guy who said they werenít letting their kid shoot anything smaller than 350

If it was my kids tag, first elk we saw, is getting shot at. Spots or 300Ē+, lead will be flying!

My son pulled the tag last year. Rough hunt. We hunted a total of 5 days and never saw an elk. Granted I have only been on bull elk hunts about 3 times in my life. So you could say the blind leading the blind. However we did talk to 3 other youth hunt groups that also stated the hadn't seen anything. Also unless it changed you are allowed to harvest either sex. So you can shoot a cow. Best of luck. We still had fun and enjoyed the opportunity.
