Likely ytc. Tank range is n.e. corner of ytc, other side of ridge just south of kittitas.

The Japanese are renting the YTC for the month of September. They shipped over all kinds of toys and are playing war games.

The booming sounds you hear are bull elk. I remember hearing the same noise in 1981. When I went to investigate the sound I found a huge 10 point elk slamming his antlers into the large trees preparing for the rut. Every hit would send off a large boom that would echo for many miles. A little further down the ridge was an 11 point elk doing the same thing. He must have weighed as much as a large moose. Unfortunately the season was not open until the following day, and needless to say, I went home empty handed that year. Someone in the Colockum area  will hopefully  take home a record monster elk this year. Follow the booms.

I seem to remember something about and endless hole near eburg with spacemen regularly using it as a landing spot. We need to acknowledge the fact that this is not war games or drilling, but in fact a clingon invasion. Perhaps they have collaborated with the lovely people in Olympia and are using it as a transplant point for wolves and hunters whose sole tool is a hoochie mama and an inability to avoid other people. No friends, this is not Japan, but something far, far more serious  >:(

Collusion at its finest. That's what they want you to believe but if you read the "bigfoot" thread it's all in there. >:(

Some of the guys I know would claim to have seen this happen back in the 80's when all the elk would congregate in one area forming really large herds.
