Meeting set July 31 in Ellensburg
to discuss hunting in Elk Area 3911

Master Hunters and area landowners are invited to attend a meeting July 31 in Ellensburg to discuss a recent boundary change and other issues in Elk Area 3911, located near Ellensburg in Kittitas County.

Hosted by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Master Hunter Advisory Group, the meeting is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Central Washington University Student Union Building, Room 210 (Theater).

The meeting will focus on the new northeastern boundary of Elk Area 3911 that was approved by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission in April, said Aaron Garcia, WDFW southcentral hunter education and volunteer coordinator. Other topics will include hunting opportunities in the elk area for certified state Master Hunters and how to hunt in the area, which is mostly made up of private lands, he said. 

“We encourage area landowners to attend, along with Master Hunters who have hunted the area before and those who plan to hunt there for the first time,” Garcia said.

Hunting in Elk Area 3911 is limited to Master Hunters, enlisted by WDFW to participate in controlled hunts to address property damage or public safety issues. The area is made up primarily of private lands, many of which are subject to property damage caused by elk.
