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.
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.
I was informed of the same thing.  They wouldn't confirm or deny, but they basically told the Muzzleloader hunters to be there the day that the base opened cause we were probably only going to have one day to get it done.  There are elk to be had all over in there though.
A bad day out hunting is better than a good day at work!

That is an unfortunate situation; access has always been dependent on military activity and can change day by day. As the footnote in the pamphlet indicates, "Military installation; access may be extremely limited."

I hope you're able to find a time slot to hunt.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Saw 6 c17 and multiple helos headed east the other day. Flew right over my place in a couple waves. I figured a big training wad in the works. Bummer for the tag holders.

Daughter has a B tag for Nov 4th I believe.

I just spoke with the wildlife program at wdfw. The guy stated they are looking into this issue and getting in touch with the base because they were unaware of this(probably FJB’s war imo). He said someone will be reaching out via phone or email to tag holder affected by this issue and be given their options moving forward..

Sucks but at least there might be some light in all of this

Down to 2 open units for tomorrow. We’ll see what happens. 90 tags in 2 units sounds like a blast.

If you put in for this unit thinking this wouldn't be an issue, then that's on you. It says right in the description. It's always been a risk you take by applying there.

There ya go with that “common sense thinking”, not much of that around these days!   
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

It doesn't matter what you think...

Spoke with wdfw again this morning. They will give point restoration to rifle alkali permit holders if they post mark their permits by today or tomorrow and return them to wdfw. FYI

It’s good to see WDFW with some “common sense thinking.”

Like Karl said there are elk to be had in all those ranges. Several years ago had the muzzy tag and hardly anything was open. Get out of the rig and hike the canyons. There there. Wouldn’t catch me turning back in a tag in this state!
Happiness is being in the woods!!!
