10/7/13 Elk Herd Locations & Report

Today's viewing confirms the cool weather has ramped the elk rut up to normal levels after the warm weather period.  This morning there was a a lot of rut activity, bugling and the bulls were more active.

4 herds today, the largest remains in the Ponca fields. There were a few bulls bugling in the Ponca field area. It is the likely spot for a bull fight.  Elsewhere in the valley there is a mid-valley herd, another at the 43/21 intersection, and a 4th in the south end by the Buffalo River.  The largest herd bull is with this south end herd.

This morning viewing ended between 8:30 and 9:00 AM.  With this cool weather longer viewing times are possible, but it is most reliable to be in the valley at sunrise when the elk are closest to the road.
