    First elk on the road as I came off the hill this morning. Young bull with a nice rack but I startled him pretty good and he was very unsure on where to get off the road and down into the willows. I had to take to slow so I did not push him towards the highway.

    They are moving before hunting season opens.

    Seen them in Colorado come down low one year people were shooting them from the road leaving them lay.

    I guess I lived right elevation because I had Antelope, Mule Deer, Big Horn Sheep and Elk around my House.
