Several times, I think it is the same heard from Turnball and they get frisky.  In the winter both years I saw them out that way.

I have never seen one north of I90 but I have seen several south of Ritzville on 262? South like your going to Washtucna

I had never seen or heard of them around there.... There is one less now, took out a small two point last night with my pickup. The trooper said I'm his first vehicle elk collision.

Road kill salvage!!  Takes a little sting out of the damaged vehicle I bet.

I thought about it and then a fella in a Honda CRV used the carcass as a jump ay 70mph.

I've seen them closer to the Fishtrap exit north of the freeway.  About mile post 272 I believe.  Over the course of time that my daughter went to EWU she saw where two moose were killed on I-90 around Sprague Lake.
