All Fall long we rave about the elk viewing and the bugling and the bulls…oh my! But the truth is that elk viewing in Benezette is far more impressive in the winter months than any other time of year. In the winter the elk gather in large herds in sunny fields to catch some rays.
The Internet tells me that they also move to ‘the low ground’ for protection from the wind. We have, however, seen large herds (we’re talking 100 elk at a time here people!) all over Benezette in the colder months.
With the crazy weather we’ve had already this year, it seems the herds are starting early. I’ve seen pictures on Facebook and Instagram showing more than 100 elk gathered up in Benezette already! Plus! I’ve seen them myself a few times already this year!
I went back through some old pictures and found a few with big groups.
I’ll share as many pictures as I can in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out this video from a few weeks ago! The husband caught bugling and elk digging for yummy grass below this early layer of snow!
