4 elk herds in the valley this morning.
A surprise arrival was the large herd just south of the Ponca Access this morning. A herd was behind the mill pond. Two more herds were on the opposite sides of 21 down by the Upper Wilderness Trail Head. The cold weather has definitely changed things. Overcast skies this morning extended elk viewing until after 9AM.
The south end remains the best spot for elk bugling. Prince is in the south end.
Good elk viewing has returned. Today's map is below.
