The pattern of the last few days, and in some cases weeks, continues to be stable. Elk viewing is very good with 3 herds, and a small bull herd staying out pretty much all day long. Today's rainy weather will extend viewing probably to all day. Elk love rain and cool weather.
All three herds are pretty good sized. It appears that some consolidation has taken place. There are perhaps over 100 elk now in the valley in view, about 25% of the Arkansas elk herd.
