Morning Entertainment

One morning in the Bighorns I got up early to take advantage of the good light for photos. I spotted some animals in a grove about 100 yards away.

I stood as still as I could thinking back to those articles in 'Bugle' (it's an elk hunting magazine Dave sometimes leaves on the table and I read at breakfast instead of the cereal box).

I felt a little uneasy because I'm certainly not accustomed to being in the wild with elk, but I didn't see any antlers, so I figured they wouldn't be too territorial.

Warning about the following video - it is six minutes of elk feeding, making faces at each other and eventually running away. While it was an incredible special moment, this footage is only for the easily entertained.
