    Hello, I'm going on my first Elk hunt in Washington for the rifle opener. We will be living in a spike camp with around 9 other hunters. I'm wondering what gear you think would be overlooked by most hunters for a trip like this? Also any advice for me or our group would be great. Thanks

    The Hunt in Northeast Washington was a grind, We were on public land in the kohlville National Forest and paper company land. The terrain was not what I had expected as for as so think and hard to glass. All and all I didn't see one live elk on the trip. I did hike up 3 moutains, put on over 38 miles, and had a great experiance. I made many first timer mistakes including having to much in my pack. Everyday It got lighter and lighter. Tent camping in the low Teens for temps was a challenge, but I'm warm now. I would like to return someday to settle the score on an Elk, but probably not for a couple years. Amazing country and I was suprised how many Whitetail deer I saw. All the locals I talked were very nice!
