Another tip I learned from the experience--- if you scattered the Elk imdediately begin to use a cow call. Not just once or twice but get real aggressive with it. Maybe I just got lucky but we were able to call the elk into the open.

FIND THE ARROW!
I've had plenty of blood trails from arrow shot game that really didn't start going for 40yds. The arrow is your absolute best tell tale of a hit. An arrow can not pass through an animal and not get bloody. Expandables sometimes don't exit so if you absolutely can't find the arrow, assume a hit. Follow where you last saw the animal go. You might still find part of the arrow if it didn't pass thru on this track.
I one time shot a deer that left a "CHERRY" arrow and no blood trail whatsoever. I found her, she didn't go far (she was hit solid thru the heart) but all I had to follow was kicked up leaves and a couple of busted limbs. The only blood I found was on the arrow and where she lay.
Number one rule: Find the arrow ;)
