I spend a lot of time up there and have long wondered why there isn’t at least a little pocket of them up there more consistently? Nice bull too!

Seeing big game populations spread out into areas where they aren't/haven't been in awhile (a la the moose moving west into the N Cascades) always warms my heart.

About 10 years ago, the NPS was complaining about elk damage in the historic Buckner orchard in Stehekin. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Nice catch Transka.   He was looking for this one, also not where elk normally are known to be, but within reach for him. Hope they hooked up.

Sept 14th! He was definitely in the "seeking" mode and likely covering a lot of ground. Give the bull to cow ratio of that area I'd say he would be a callable bull with some cow talk!
