9/14/12 Bull Elk Fights are Beginning in Boxley Valley

The table is set now and the bull elk fight season has begun. After hearing reports of bull elk fights, we verified one yesterday down by Smith Creek. You could hear the unmistakable antler clashing of a couple of bulls.

In the field just north of Smith Creek there are at least 2 elk herds and a few bulls. There is a 3rd herd just south of the Upper Wilderness Trailhead. When rutting bulls stack into a compact area like this, there will be bull fights. Bugling is more frequent every day.

 One of the bigger bulls, Prince, has pulled into that field, a signal that the big boys are arriving now. If you want to see a bull fight, the next month will be the very best opportunity of the season.

Perfect viewing weather this weekend with cooler weather.
