NE Washington Elk????

I have lived in WA my whole life and have done plenty of deer hunting but now I have gotten a wild hair to try and find some elk. Im looking for some help on finding a place to start looking in NE Washington. I would really appreciate any info as I would like to start scouting soon and try to see some elk. Thanks

Re: NE Washington Elk????

Where do you live now and why look for elk in the NE corner of the state?

There's some prime whitetails up there and also moose with a few elk but I'd think that you'd have better luck in other parts of the state if you're looking for your first elk hunt.

Re: NE Washington Elk????

I live in Spokane so NE WA is the closest area that has some elk. I hunt mulies in the blues and have seen some huge bulls down there but have not gotten lucky enough to draw a branched antler tag. So that's pretty much my only options. Im just not really familiar with and of the Pend Orielle county area so I don't even know where to start.

Lots of elk in the Colockum between Ellensburg and Wenatchee. Branched antler is nice if you get lucky and draw but a spike sure eats nice.

Re: NE Washington Elk????

There is big bulls in the Medalline falls area. Just get a topo map and start looking for holes and drainages with water that have north east facing ridges and little road access. I've seen giants but they are scarce. There is also big brown furry things up there so watch out. I have a few on a trail cam. Sullivan lake area is a place to start. Head up the road that goes to Priest and explore the salmo region. I don't live or hunt in Washington but nobody goes up there during the summer like the North fork of the Cda so I spend time in the area, mostly shooting ground squirels and looking at elk and mule deer. Good luck!

Re: NE Washington Elk????

Thanks for the info. I have heard alot of people talking about the Sullivan/Metaline/Salmo Priest areas. I have gone up there a couple of times and it is extremely thick! Is that all there is to hunt in is the thick stuff, I dont even know where to start when hunting that stuff. I have a lot to learn about elk hunting, I have never done any elk hunting before.
