10/20/13 Elk Herd Locations Map & Report

Morning elk viewing was nearly impossible this morning due to heavy fog.  I could see no animals except stragglers in my survey of the valley.  If the evening viewing follows the patterns of the last 2 days I would expect there to be pretty good elk viewing in the Ponca fields after 5 or 6 PM.  This has been a little later than usual. I suspect it has to do with the hunting pressure for whitetails. 

I believe the full moon and especially the deer hunting season account for the poor morning viewing. Elk often feed heavily at night under the full moon.  There seem to be a number of deer hunters in Boxley Valley today.
