Slow Start to Elk Season Could Lead to Accidents

The hills are busy with hunters as the modern elk season opened Saturday.

Deputy Steve Sutliff with the Yakima County Sheriff’s office says it is anyone’s guess as to what kind of season it will be. “The weather has been so nice that it’s keeping a lot of the animals up in the hills.”

Sutliff says the nice weather keeps the elk high in the mountains and they will not move from that higher elevation until the snow falls so he says many hunters are having to hike to find animals.

Sutliff says if drivers need to watch for hunter traffic on mountain passes and if you are hiking make sure to wear hunter orange.
