this happens every year. these hills green up before others and the animals are drawn in.
I am seeing so many elk right now, i don't even stop to look anymore. Kind of neat and sad at the same time.
one pic is with a flash the other pic is without a flash. 350 yards from my deck. Came home another night to sight a rifle in and they where there again. Didn't bother them at the least to have me sighting in my single shot rifle.
got to love north idaho
