Elk Bugling

The elk moved up into the trees yesterday and today.  But they are back in the field this evening.

Looks like he’s got about 30 in his harem.  That includes calves.

The calves have their full colors now….a mini-me.

We even got to hear the big bull bugle.

I don’t know if he does that for the cows to hear or if he could hear another bull up in the trees somewhere…or maybe a hunter with an elk call?

He’s moving them right along.  Probably heading down to the Alsea River for a drink.

It’s a nice looking herd, huh?
