So far I've only picked up one from last year rag 5 and a chewed up BT. Lots of guys hitting it so I'm sure a bunch have been picked up.
Shut up and Hunt!

It has defently been a slow start and holy crap are there a bunch of guys out there. It's almost not fun any more. I've found three but there all old ones. I still have one or two secret spots I've yet to go in to. I useally wait till mid April on those ones when I know for sure there on the ground. Hoping all the masses that have been out early get burnt out on not finding anything and the woods clear out a little

I have seen photos of some large sheds found...Can't post photos as they don't belong to me. But there are a couple whoppers with head gear still on from what I hear.
Wishing I was fishing...or in Wyoming

5 bulls yesterday still packing both sides. Three bulls that had shed but just recently , I'd say with in the last 3-5 days. I tried like hell to find there antlers but no dice. Spring bear hunters are going to pick up a lot of bone this year

Found these on Sunday, I think they are a set. 1st set of they are. Eatonville side. I've found 6 so far, and 5 of them were within a half mile of each other.

Forgot to attach pics. Would have been cool ATL pics, but I forgot my phone in the truck.

Are there just as many elk in the Eatonville block as the kapowsin?  Per the area of course there is more in kapowsin based on size but are there quite a few bulls in the Eatonville block as well?  I've had a kapowsin pass last few years.  Never stepped foot in Eatonville area.

There is a ton of them in the Eatonville side. Can't belive they only give out 1 tag, you could take a few more out of there and not hurt the herd at all.

Been a really slow year for me too.  Found a few, only 1 nice fresh big one.  Hate to know my mile per shed ratio this year.  Seems like no matter how far I hike someone is 1 day ahead of me at every spot.  Fresh boot track.

Holy chit! Nice set. Looks like the one I found last year on Scott Turner side of Eatonville. I wonder if he migrated? 😳😳
