Elk viewing remains very good with 3 herds in Boxley Valley from end to end. See map below.
New bulls are now arriving every day, signalling that we are steadily notching up in the rut. There are also stragglers and maveric bulls here and there. Things are very dynamic now and the pace of change is picking up.
If you plan to visit, the next week or so is when the action really ramps up. I reviewed my records and bull fights are most common from now through the 2nd week of October. Nobody can guarantee you will see a bull fight, but your percentages are the best during this period.
