I've been reading a lot of doom and gloom on different forums over the last couple years about how much worse the elk hunting has become on the breaks. I understand that numbers are down, but it can't really be that bad is it? In the falls of '07-'09 when I bowhunted it, we hiked into the furthest spots we could get to and literally saw elk every morning and evening. I'm I just not wanting to accept this or is it being exaggerated how much worse it is? Either way,im getting pumped to head out there in 10 days. It looks like the weather is going to be cooler than normal too.
