We hunted the east side of lewis river unit. Not a peep. Did call in a bull but alas we needed two more steps to clear for a shot and he did not comply. No shot. Really snowed heavy last night and today. The bull responded quietly to cow calls. Not alot of sign either. Not sure whats up with the elk numbers in the area we hunt.

Just spent Saturday, Sunday, Thursday and Friday hunting the west side. Weyerhauser property with lots of elk. We saw bulls and cow and killed a bull. One other close call.  I did not hear a single bugle and was in the woods from dark to dark except for today.
