Title: Elk herd crossing
Post by: RugerRay on September 23, 2021, 08:12:21 AM
My fiance' took this video while on her way to work Tuesday morning. Pretty dang good sized herd for up here. I wonder if the fires in that area merged a bunch of elk together?

Yeah that could definitely be because of the fire near there. There's not even enough cover for a herd that size in that area. They can cover alot of ground in no time though. Never seen elk there before.  :dunno:

Last year driving through there around this time I saw a herd of nearly that size out there in a field just about dusk. Buddy took some pictures as weíve lived here our whole lives and never seen a herd that big. Iíve seen maybe a dozen as the largest group before that. On Boulder pass 5 years ago or so a heard of 40+ elk were milling about the road. Tons of pictures and a lot of us searched for days and no ones found that herd again in the whole kettle crest. They can cover ground fast!
