Headed up this Sunday for a few days for the first scouting trip. Thanks to those who Emailed and called giving insightful information. Sticking to public land at this point as it's seems this is better suited to the type of hunting I prefer. Of course if anyone has more tidbits to share I'm all ears :chuckle: :chuckle:

I had the tag last year and got a little 5x6 bull.  It was a fun hunt and put many miles hiking back by the washout and other areas but I ended up lucking out and finding my bull off the 73 road not very far from the truck.  I will be hiking this sunday up by crystal mountain for my sisters birthday and will keep my eyes open and let you know if I come across any elk while we are up there.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the help and suggestions. I am pumped and ready to start looking this area at all the spots people suggested except for the deep dark holes post over blow down. I'm 69 and have not desire to die walking with an elk in my back up a grade I probably can't hike normally.( I like elk meat, qqaw does my family. LOL but thanks everyone. You have been a big help for getting started especially. Perhaps some new stuff will pop up after archery season starts and people fill tags?

Respectfully,

Big AL

Good luck Al.  You've got a couple extra weeks for the permit than last year, so you've got lots of time.

We've been all over the Tree farm bear hunting this week, the bulls have started tearing up the trees and hitting the wallows, haven't heard a bugle yet but it does look like things are starting to heat up. Good luck.

HI folks,
Just wanted to finalize my White River MF Bull hunt.
I came close one time but did not succeed. I just wanted to say many thanks to Trophyhunt and ALL the guys who stepped in to volunteer help and availability to help pack.  YOU were all appreciated. I hunted 12 days and covered a lot of ground. I saw elk on some days, all cows and calves. Several White collared Cows.  A special thanks to Jon for hunting with me opening weekend, and all the fellas that offered suggestions as to where to go and where to look. I pretty much completed everyones suggestions BTW>

All in all a discouraging hunt for me and expensive, but lots of beautiful bluebird days to reflect on life, and enjoy Gods beauty, especially up close and personal with Mt. Rainier.  Thank you everyone. Your help, and kindness were greatly appreciated.
Perhaps another year?  The good Lord willing? ...: > )

We had a tough hunt this year too.  This tag is far from a slam dunk.
