I tried posting this in the big game forum but nothing. I am looking for some info. I don't want anyones spot just some general ideas. I would really like to get an elk this fall and I would like to know what area I should start scouting. I normally go at St. Helens area but I never scouted till the weekend before and that has left me empty handed. I have also been told the PE Ell area is pretty good and also Packwood. I just wanted some feedback from some fellow Washington hunters I would like to stick to the south west if I find a decent heard I am going to visit them often if I can.
