As noted on the map below, two other normal sized herds were evident. One is up by Ponca, and a second by the 43/21 Intersection. A third loosely organized herd was in the first field just south of the elk pullout. There were enough animals in that group to note, but it did not seem very organized.
There were scattered elk elsewhere. Be on the lookout for elk feeding on roadsides everywhere in Boxley Valley.
