I know today was supposed to be whitetail deer from SNP, but I just felt it fitting to start off the new year back in Elk Country. Today's photos are of the 3 collared elk we saw last weekend. (I am sure you will recognize one of them!) One nice aspect about collaring is that it makes following an animal throughout their life very easy by issuing them an identifying number. Pictured above are Bull #36, Cow # 78, and Bull #20. I will tag photos of collared animals so that as I accumulate them over time we can click on their corresponding number to watch their progress.
I hope that some positive changes are made in 2010 regarding the elk herd for the benefit of the elk themselves as well as for all those that enjoy them.
