I'd be nervous with that fire that started up there......

My approach to hunting elk that experience a lot of calling (pretty much the entire eastern Cascades): 1.  Try to find elk without calling.  2.  If elk aren't bugling during the day, get up at midnight and listen from 2400-0200; if there are elk in the area you should hear them then.  3.  After locating elk with 1 or 2, try to get close to where they were last seen.  4.  Sit and listen.  5.  If you can't locate any elk without calling, give a single, subordinate bull bugle.  If you are within hearing of a herd bull, that will usually elicit a response.  If you get one, game on - head for the downwind side of that last location.  If not, wait 15 minutes, give a couple cow calls, wait another 15.  If still nothing, assume they may have moved on, cross over a ridge and repeat.  Once you are close to and down wind of a herd bull and his harem, still hunt very slowly into the wind; if the bull bugles respond with cow calls.  Now, disclaimer: I am primarily a meat hunter for elk, and this is a great tactic for killing satellite bulls.  I've had some close calls with herd bulls, but have never killed one archery hunting.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Great advice right there. Also take a few different styles of cow calls. Not sure if it's normal or what but I've had elk respond to one particular call and not the next. I'm not an expert so I can't explain why, but I do carry few different calls
Now because of it

Especially when they are planning on letting it burn in the wilderness. Expect closures during archery season.

Yeah. I ended up going down to scout this last weekend and all the trails and highway 410 were closed. Not good at all. I've put all my eggs in one basket with that area and need to search for new options. The forest ranger has stated that he thinks it will burn into October. I hope thats not true or at least they open the trails if they aren't a treat to the actual fire.

Does anybody else have any updated info?
