Elk Season Is Coming....

Are You Ready..... Is Your Plan Ready?

"Get An Unprecedented Two Full Years Of Membership"


This course WILL dramatically increase your odds of finding more elk?

Welcome to The Treeline Academy "E-Scouting MasterClass."  Like most of you, I eagerly anticipate and cherish the time I get to spend elk hunting.   

As elk hunters, we are on a continual search for knowledge to help elevate our elk hunting skill set, and even more importantly, tactics that will help us find more elk.

I spent the first two decades of my elk-hunting career traveling from Missouri to the western states. Planning elk hunts from the Midwest is challenging. This is true regardless of the travel distance. This experience was the driving force behind the development of this course.

Today, we have access to much more information, but a comprehensive E-Scouting system has not existed until now!

Realistically, elk inhabit a relatively small portion of the western landscape, and E-Scouting is a critical component when it comes to breaking down Hunt Areas and finding locations that actually hold elk.

This MasterClass is a complete and comprehensive E-Scouting solution. It is the most definitive resource ever assembled on the subject. I designed this curriculum for both the beginner and the experienced public land, DIY elk hunter. This course is a first-of-it’s-kind and is powered by more than 30 years of elk hunting experience.

Over the past three decades I’ve honed and refined my elk finding system, and now it is time to share that system!

The strategies that I present in this course WILL give you a real advantage when it comes to planning your hunts, developing a Strategic Hunt Plan, and it WILL ultimately improve your odds of finding more elk.

The primary focus of this course is elk hunting with a strong emphasis on archery hunting during the rut. However, most of the techniques and information can be applied across the board to various species and seasons.

The course is designed so that you can work through at your own pace.  The course keeps track of your progress and is organized so you can revisit the modules and content. Once completed, it will become a valuable go-to resource.

Your flat fee membership gives you two full years of access covering you for the next two elk hunting seasons!

What Do The Experts Say?

These guys need no introduction!

Cody Rich

The Rich Outdoors Podcast | Backcountry Fuel Box

"I have interviewed hundreds of hunters and most of the best big game hunters in the world. The one thing they all have in common is their ability to plan a hunt and their efficiency in the hills. Mark Livesay is hands down the best E-scouting guru I have ever met, and this course will help you layout a game plan that will absolutely take your hunting to the next level. Unless you have 20 hours a week to spend scouting on foot, your ability to plan a hunt and scout from your computer are critical skills to master. His course is underpriced and quite possibly the best information ever put together on the topic."

Ryan Lampers

Western Hunting Summit, aka The Giant Killer!"

"Time is of utmost importance when taking on big hunts each and every season. A detailed Hunt Plan combined with a E-Scouting system is a game changer. Consistent success just doesn’t happen, which is why the Treeline Academy E-Scouting MasterClass is so incredibly helpful when planning an elk hunt. September is short. Prepare, know before you go and eliminate wasting that precious mountain time."

Brian Barney

Eastmans Elevated

Mark Livesay has developed the best comprehensive resource to build a successful hunt plan. He has broken down how to dissect a unit and find productive elk habitat. E-scouting is one of the most crucial skills to learning new spots and this program will take it to a higher level.

ABOUT THE CREATOR

Mark Livesay is the founder of Treeline Pursuits and the creator of Treeline Academy.  In general, Mark is a “all in” type of person as seen through his triathlon career (10 Ironman finishes), the formation of his event production company Ultramax Sports, and most significantly in his life-long hunting pursuits.

He spent his first two elk hunting decades traveling from Missouri to the western states. He would definitely qualify as a serial elk hunter, pursuing elk in multiple western states, and spending over 60 days in the remote backcountry each season.  His 30 years of elk hunting have given him a thorough understanding of the challenges associated with E-Scouting and finding elk.

Recently, he has been featured as a guest on a growing list of hunting’s best podcasts, including The Rich Outdoors, Eastmans Elevated, Hunt Harvest Health, The Gritty Podcast, Elk Shape, Backcountry Rookies, Publically Challenged, Shoot'n The Bull, and Interviews With The Hunting Masters. His E-Scouting podcasts on the Rich Outdoors were among the podcast’s most downloaded episodes in 2019.


He has published several elk hunting strategy articles and has been invited to present E-Scouting tactics at the Western Hunting Summit the past two years.


Mark and his wife, Amy, moved to Montana in 2016 and have never looked back. They share their Missoula home with their two children, Eli and Emme, and a gaggle of pack llamas. The growing herd of Ccara pack llamas is now a vital part of his public land, do-it-yourself hunting arsenal.

I haven't even made it through the portion that talks about what to look for when e-scouting for elk. That said, I feel like I've already gotten enough info from the first couple modules to say that this is a must-have course. The tools of the trade modules alone have completely changed how I plan my hunts. I can't wait to make it through the rest of the course.

I am completely blown away by the knowledge that is given in this course! I have been going about this the wrong way. The last hunt I went on I had no plan, saw no elk and had no idea where I was going to hunt each day! The feeling of defeat is real and takes over. With this course I will definitely be better prepared and always have a plan to rely on.

Im from TN so E-Scouting is a must. However, I was just able to pull off a pre-hunt scout trip to WY. I was hoping so much that the bench module would go live while I was still on the mountain. However, I was able to utilize all the other info in the course to really narrow down my search. I was able to locate cow/calving areas and marked them on the map. After watching the Bench Module I will now be able to locate bull bedding areas and the possible routes they will take.... I have no doubt I will locate bulls come September. All thanks to this course! Thanks Mark
