Elk viewing returned to what would be normal for elk rut viewing. This morning there were 2 herds in the valley. The Ponca field held a nice herd of about 30 cows with a herd bull and a satellite. Dow at the intersection of Highways 43 and 21 there was an all bull herd of second tier bulls, not the biggest bulls, but not the smallest either. Many stragglers elsewhere, mostly bulls.
Lots of viewing and good photography for the many visitors in the valley today.
