5/23/12 Excellent Elk Viewing for Holiday Weekend

Elk watching is great but you have to get out of bed for the best experience. This morning we saw 4 herds spread across the valley. They were heading for cover as soon as the light hit the valley, about 7:30AM.  This is the summer pattern.

Fans of bull elk will enjoy seeing the "big boys" growing their antlers for the 2012 season. I am certain I saw the Prince of Boxley this morning. He is not going to have as perfect a rack as last year, but the start of his drop tines is evident. He is a bit larger than last year and should be a contending major herd bull in the 2012 rut.

Elk calving anytime now.

Be safe and drive slowly in Boxley Valley.
