Not going to reveal the unit I hunted in this fall but it is very close to where you are inquiring about, but yes we saw plenty of elk.
How long ago was it? Was it elk season yet?
There's a lot of frustrated hunters up here. Talked to a guy who's been hunting one of the most famous areas for elk in the state for 5 days and has not seen an elk and has only heard 2 gunshots in 5 days.
Saw tons of hunters packing up and heading home this morning after several fruitless days.
