I wonder if they are hanging out more there know because some of that area burned awhile back and there is more feed there.

I could be wrong- but I think there was a group of volunteer's working on the fence last weekend. My buddy drove by that weekend and said he saw a whole bunch of people in orange along that stretch, and he said he didn't see any weapons. He was wondering what they might have been doing too.
Winter is coming.

My group took 3 cows out of the Wild Horse Wind Farm during modern.  PSE guy said its not uncommon to see 100-200 head a day even during rifle season.

A lot of the lower green dot roads are closed to protect migrating animals. On one hand this is good, but on the other, these roads gave a place to ride down out of the snow during winter.

Just wait for the WDFW to bus in a few wolves from NE Washington. Your dreams will be gone instead of giving out permits...
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............

I agree with the wolves comment. Elk numbers in that at area have increased dramatically.
