Elk Hunting Around Mt St Helens

Hello all,

I'll be going to the Mt St Helens area around Elk Pass to hunt Elk with rifle. I spent 14 hours scouting yesterday and found alot of scat in one area about 2 miles off the road. I was wondering if anyone has hunted this area before and what kind of success/advice would they have. This is my first Elk Hunt and I'm not sure what to expect with the rut being well over by 03 NOV. Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.

It is on the east side. We're going to be camped on route 25, about 25 miles up from Randle.

oh ok, i personally havent hunted there, but I know a couple guys who normally hunt that area and packwood area I'll talk to them later this week and see if I can find anything out for you. Are you planning on deer hunting in the same area?

It's possible, but I'm thinking of hunting near Elbe off of road 7. A guy I'm hunting with has said nothing but good things about packwood. We came across some blacktail while scouting for Elk, and they weren't even spooked by our presence which is a good sign I guess.
