we have hunted the walla walla unit for over 30 years. It was not uncommon to see over 100 elk a day until the last 5 years, now if you see a cow in 5 days, you are lucky. the cougar have taken that area over no matter what the game department says. last time we were there, we seen 12 cougar and not surprising, not one elk. this year my son wanted to try desolation and we drew a bull tag. have never hunted in this area, can anyone give us some insight as to a decent area. not wanting your special spot, just an area where we can enjoy the outdoors and see game.
