Lots of elk in Boxley Valley this morning. Some herds are pretty close together and there is plenty of bugling. Great viewing is likely tonight. Lost Valley remains a strong possibility. The herds are staying out much later in cool, rainy weather. They should come out earlier in the evening.
Remember that while elk love rain, they hate thunderstorms. If strong thunderstorms roll in this evening, they will take cover.
