We don't harass any elk. We just try to see where they are hanging out so we know where to look when they drop.

Shed season wouldbt work. Not enough game wardens to catch people doing it. I havnt ran into a game warden yet. Actually didnt run into one all of hunting season either.

Seen around 20 bulls yesterday, still packing. I don't shed hunt elk in feeding areas but I do not start till may 1st. Went to a place a week early a few years ago and the elk were still packing. Lesson learned.

So I live right down the road from a great spot and I do pick up sheds in march. But I have seen a huge influx of people shed hunting these days. And the people that are chasing the elk is making me sick. Y? Why would u vhasr them? The f... Horns are not goomg to fall off. All our doing is taking the chance of killing the bull. I watch a guy vhasr these elk last or and i went to make sure nothing happened. Well what do u know. The bull I found dead in side the tree line 2 ridges over. I turned that some b in. So yes I agree with a shed season and strictly enforce it. Its crap any more and its not a race.

It's illegal to harrass or persue any wildlife outside of scheduled seasons. Let the laws already in place do the work, not restrict those guys enjoying the outdoors responsibly.

I'm in the kapowsin tree farm almost every weekend.  Saw a huge increase in guys up there this last weekend.  Evidentally the race has begun.  Saw a 7pt bull still packing sunday on the road.  I'm staying out of my good spots for a few more weeks, hopefully others aren't in there pushing bulls around before they drop.

Hopefully the crowd in there is disappointed cause they haven't dropped yet, and maybe they won't come back!

Where do you hunt up there Buckhunter?

He didn't say where abouts he saw it, but knowing where he goes either on Hancock or around eatonville. And yea same here we leave the animals in peace and dont harass them, just trying to find where they are at

Increase in people probably has a lot to do with passes about to run up too

Saw 6 bucks yesterday still packing.  This includes 2 of them that only had one side.
