Elk viewing conditions and locations remain about the same. Things are dynamic now with herd bulls switching in the 3 main viewing areas. This morning viewing was very good in the Ponca field.
This morning Pretty Boy lost his harem to a bull bugling from behind the cane line. My bet is that the new bull is Junk Yard Dog, the same bull who has robbed Pretty Boy now for 2 years. JYD is a beautiful 7x7, check out the post I did on him. Photographers, you will want a good pic of JYD.
Rain is coming and with it some uncertainty about viewing. The last forecast I saw said it was 80% chance this evening for rain and possibly thunderstorms. Elk do love rain, they don't like thunderstorms. Depending on which way it goes viewing could be bad or good.
