I drew an Expo archery tag for bull elk (I know, amazing). I've never archery hunted for a big bull before, but buy a cow/spike tag every year. How would you hunt for a big bull during the August/September time frame of the archery hunt?
Hunt them in early Sept like you do anywhere else, let the elk tell you how to hunt them. Usually better chances of getting a big bull earlier on as the "pecking order" is being established. But, in units that are controlled as in LE units, I've had opportunities to shoot big bulls while spike/cow hunting from Labor Day to the end of those hunts.
Elk are vocal and rounding up cows that time of the year...
