You will find some of the best Elk and Deer hunting Washington has to offer in the hills adjoining the resort. We also offer special Deer Camp and Elk Camp rates. Information about hunting seasons and rules and regulations can be found here.
Deer: A mild winter will help improve the number of spike bucks this fall. Deer populations seem to be increasing west of I-5 as timber harvest takes place, which produces better deer forage.
Elk: St Helens elk population is responding to the increased permit levels and some units saw a reduction in take last year. The winter of 2010-2011 was not severe and hopefully a few more bulls have escaped to older age classes. Permit levels in the St Helens herd remain high to reduce the population to better balance the elk numbers with available habitat.
