Spent a week (14th - 20th) in Elk River with a guide, and out of the 6 hunters present, we dropped one buck and he was tiny. Sunup to sundown trying different locations and elevations and it was a total bust. I didn't see that coming.

That's rough. Definitely not what you hope for on a guided trip.

 Pretty odd year in 10A for me. There were more hunters than I can remember since the 90s. Seemed like there were camps at every pull off and the weird part was that the vast majority had Idaho plates. Almost no out of staters. Snow was terribly crunchy so I decided to shoot the first buck I rattled in and head home.

Congrats 3 nails.  I was curious what you were going to come home with.   What did you think of numbers of deer?

Awesome buck 3nails!

I saw more Washington and Oregon folks out the last 10 days than I saw locals. Pierce area.

One thing I forgot to mention was the amount of logging that has occurred over the last 2 years since I've been there. I was in disbelief. Not much sign in the cuts since they were so new. Any timber that you could find was loaded with sign. The numbers still appear low to me but I'd expect them to rebound nicely after good regrowth happens.

I didn't see a single wolf track around there this year. That was good.

I agree with the hunter numbers. I was in a new unit but not very far from where I usually hunt and we wouldn't hardly see anyone this time of the year just a handful of locals. Not this year we seen Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California and a couple plates I couldn't make out but there was alot of people out
