After dinner tonight we drove down to the Ponca fields and there was a nice, normal sized elk herd in front of Big Hollow, about the middle of those fields. As I had heard, they came out in the evening. There was bugling and an nice crowd in spite of the rain. I would say the herd was about 30-40 animals with a herd bull and 2 satellites.
Evening viewing has been better than morning viewing for a few days.
