I don't even remember where I found it. I was sent a link and haven't looked at it in a while.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Well if you run across it let me know if you would.  Didn't know that info was even available. I'll check with the WDFW also.

I had the Quality Rifle tag two years ago.  My partner and I both got nice bulls.  My advice from the Game Dept was concentrate on Manastash Lake and higher.  I hunted from Manastash Campground and higher on the Manastash Ridge side of the road.  We found both our bulls on different days in Keenan Meadows.  The elk were very vocal at last light and for a while after dark.  They were coming silently to calls during the daylight.
The ATVs tend to slow down when it's very dusty.  I saw absolutely none.  I camped at Riders Camp and could listen to bugles at night from camp.  I scouted the burn hard and that's where I was trying to focus.  There's water everywhere so I'm not sure waiting on water holes would have been a good tactic.  The elk stayed hidden in thick trees.  I was walking an average of 13 miles per day and blind calling to find them.  I finally realized they were coming in silent and I was patient enough.
Good Luck!
