Elk Sheds

April 15, 2014

I’ve been watching the Roosevelt Elk herd closely this last month.  In particular, I’ve looked for the bull to see when he drops his antlers.  He finally dropped them last week sometime.

Goin’ on an antler hunt!

He still looks pretty shaggy but he’ll lose all that scruffy winter fur and be sleek-looking before we know it.

Be courteous when hunting sheds.  Always get permission from land owners before entering private property.

Osprey

April 13, 2014

The osprey are back on the Alsea River!

This one put on a show for about an hour.  He caught 4 or 5 fish in that time but I couldn’t keep up with him when he dove for them.
