    Seen deer and elk.

    The following sentence includes countable deers and elks without any article. Could you explain why is this so?

    you’ve seen deer and elk in this area before.

    Thank you

    Re: Seen deer and elk.

    Have you checked the usage of the words in a dictionary?

    Re: Seen deer and elk.

    Hint: What is the plural of these words?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
