Montana elk?

Postby Lefty » 12 07, 2020 •  [Post 1]

I'm still looking for a shootable cow with my muzzleloader.

Rocketing up the I -15 freeway was an amazing sight out on a desert alfalfa field , Well over 800 elk, only 6 bulls.
I counted out 400 , still less than 1/2.
Lousy phone pic from the freeway,

And not my unit

Kind of a bonus . One trip during season a big wide 6x6 was standing in the sage .

I thought they were from the Centennial Valley,
Spoke with the gal at the gas station,
She said they were the Saint Anthony herd staging before crossing the freeway heading for refuge at the Idaho National Labratory.

I've just never seen so many elk one field.



I hope other bulls are hiding
