I hunted area 7 for either sex elk last year. Going to probably do it again while I'm building up preference points. I know a guy that took a decent 5 x 5 bull out of there around Deadmans Road a couple of years ago. Last year I scouted pre season and camped out for a total of 8 days and did not see one elk! Saw everything else under the sun...moose(tons of bulls), antelope, mule deer and even a pine marten! But no elk! Anybody got some tips? Would greatly appreciate it!
