Weekend Outlook For Elk Watching & Restroom Facilities in Ponca

If the weather forecast holds, Friday night there will be a frontal change and Saturday will mark the beginning of significantly cooler weather with a high of 64.  With nighttime lows in the 40's starting Saturday night we should start seeing significantly longer viewing times and more elk in the fields.

This could be the weather change that will ignite the rut.  It is right on time, breaking the back of the summer weather we have had recently

The governmental shutdown has no impact on elk viewing at all. There are public bathrooms in Ponca at the Ponca Elk Education Center -- it is an AGFC facility, not federal. Check out the displays and gift shop at the Center.  It won a national award for excellence in elk interpretation by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

The campgrounds are closed, but there are private campgrounds near Ponca as well as very affordable cabins.  For information and prices http://buffaloriverchamber.com .

The Center is also popular with bull elk looking to perfect their rutting skills.
