Howdy. About to start scouting around the Olympics (GMUís 638, 636, 618), mostly for elk. Any advice where NOT to bother? Trying to find places where you can get away from the crowd by hiking in deep. Donít  want to go where the horse/orv guys and their wall tents will be.

636 is special permit only for elkÖ all are good for bear, I wouldnít consider any for deer.

The other 2 are a brushy, thick mess at least on the public land portions. Thereís some backcountry-ish opportunities in either. Never made sense to me in 638 because you can day hunt most of it easily. Iíve thought about it in 618 because thereís more roadless area, but havenít been back very deep.

Elk are pretty sparse in both units - it can take a lot of work to get on them - way  more difficult than the timber co lands. Usually good animals when you find them though.
