With an Olympic tag you can literally do all that and pretty much any combination of them. You can hunt swamps, clear cuts or second growth timber. It has it all.

100% on this. One of my best glassing spots is in the Olympic zone less than 200 yards from the truck. I can drive 30 minutes to a different GMU where I don’t bring glass because the terrain is so thick I only call to locate. So many options and terrain types.

Congrats on the tag! I would love to have it, Id do Olympic and hold out for a good one. Surprised at WDFW for giving 19 of these tags though, when a guy can put in for quality elk for 20 years in this state and still not have a decent chance of drawing.

This was my thought going into this and seems to be the consensus here. Thanks for all the input everyone, I'm going to give olympic a shot! The area I hunt doesn't produce big bulls and you don't get many opportunities like this in washington, so I'm going to go after one in a beautiful part of our state.

I'll get a thread going for the journey, I'm going to get some family camping trips out there this summer to start scouting.

Just a heads up, that hoof rot permit is a one and done permit!  You have to use your regular elk tag w your permit, but you only get to kill one elk for the season.  Just a heads up.

I am aware of this,  but I appreciate the heads up, thank you.

I have hunted both. There is a lot of access on state ground in the Olympic area. I did a hike in and car camp there.

I have hunted 530 as well. I bought walk in access to timber land. I saw more elk. I was not necessarily around more elk though. There are more cuts to see into from what I have seen. I hunted behind locked gates, closer to the park in the olympic area.

I would hunt with a bow in the Olympics and maybe muzzleloader. Late season in 530. That's how I see it.

FYI, there is no late ML season in 530, only archery.
