I was up near Mt Spokane this winter and we usually see 100 + elk heard come down out of the tree line into the fields on our old farm to drink in the creek, it's something we look forward to every Christmas. But this year we never saw the heard and very few elk at all. Also know one who horse packs into Idaho each season to hunt from heard of about 300. Says last two years hasn't seen them & hasn't even heard the bugling. How are the heards here in Oregon holding up? IS all this info on saveelk.com realistic? I would like to think we can still choose to put meat on our families tables.
