After a couple of day absence, the elk started emerging again today after last night's rain storms. Probably the best viewing location is down by Cave Mountain Road, but the situation is very dynamic. This is a different herd bull.
Elk love rain and cool temperatures. These conditions should extend viewing times a lot during the next few days. The rut is revving up now as more cow elk become estrous.
Remember the Ozark Mountain Artists Tour begins today and runs all weekend.
