Elk Activity Updates

Elk Activity update – July 8th, 2014
Please report harvest to (509) 925–9323


  • Please call in to 925-9323 to report where and when (time and date) your animal was harvested, how many animals were in the group, and how many members of the group wore radio-collars
  • If you see fences torn down by elk getting pushed around them, please offer then and there to make repairs. This may help keep you in good standing with private property owners.

Elk Activity – 3911 Kittitas County

At this time elk in most areas of GMU’s 328, 329, 335, 336, and 340 are in the upper elevation timbered areas and away from damage areas.  However, as conditions become drier in those areas some elk move down near or into the damage areas of Elk Area 3911.  During August elk can damage hay and other crops and opportunities for Master Hunters to harvest elk increase.
