Alkali 371 Elk hunters
« on: October 11, 2023, 02:32:09 PM »
Went out to scout today on the Yakima firing center was advised by the military police to turn my tag back in as all the unit areas will be closed during the duration of your hunt that hold elk.(4000 soldier's just arrived) There is 3 areas open all in the south side of the unit(no elk) Was informed by the game department you only had up until 2 weeks prior to your hunt to turn your tag back in Looks like tag soup.

what units are open and how long are the troops scheduled to be there?

I'm holding an alkali B cow tag so I'd really like to know more about this. I still have time, but it's close.

and 3. I just called. There are elk to be had in all those units. Especially if they start pounding the impact zone. Too late to turn your tag in so keep the faith and go hit it hard  :twocents:

It’s been pretty locked down almost all of hunting season! Archery season there was a few days where most areas open….muzzy season there was 2 days where most were open otherwise a few areas in the south were all that was open. From what I heard the troops were arriving this week.

Got here today also. Was told the same thing.  Such a great quality hunt. The state should make an exception for the late change on the base. They do with fires.

used to be a bull tag. So dumb the state moved it to quality, especially with the obstacles you have to deal with down there. Good luck either way. Never know what can happen

My son has a youth cow tag for Dec/Jan. He is really looking forward to trying to tag his first elk. Hopefully the military exercise is over by then.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!

With what's going on in the middle east they may be ramping up...hopefully this works out for you all but it wouldn't be shocking if that area got pretty busy....Good Luck

If it is indeed the Japanese troops, they have been coming annually for as long as I can remember. It's normally in September though. This would be pretty late for them.

Going to elk camp a week ago, we saw a very large convoy of military vehicles headed east on I90.   They were all pulled over because one was broken down…..caused one heck of a mess / backup as people slowed to look at the convoy.

I can verify they weren’t there in September and I can only say they were coming this week by rumor of half ass guard info.
