Just curious to see what you guys think. Look like elk to me and I get plenty on a game cam about a mile from here.

I will add that I use the phrase "Look like elk to me.", loosely. Obviously its impossible to tell, but it is either elk or cattle. Just thought it was a cool to possibly see elk on onx.

Very well could be. Its National Forest and cattle wonder wherever. This meadow has a fence along most of it but its all open range.

Here are a couple groups of elk that Iíve found on onXmaps. Seems to me they are usually tightly grouped up like the pics below. Not sure why  :dunno:

Here is a Google Earth vs. OnX comparison of what I'm almost positive are elk, due to the fact of their location in very rugged terrain.

It's not a complete "monumental" secret, the blown down trees should give a good indicator as to the general location.  ;)

Hanford? .... No but seriously, that does look like a commonly used mineral lick. Where are the blown down trees in the other pic?  :dunno:
