|View From Gilbert Viewing Area-Usually Snow Covered In February|
I did see quite a few elk, but not as many as usual, and bull sightings were few and far between. I checked out Gray Hill several times, which is where many have seen bulls lately, but I did not see one elk let alone a bull. Two young bulls were sighted at Devil's Elbow on Monday evening, but I filmed them with the Canon XL-H1 and have no still photos to post of this encounter.
After checking Gray Hill and Winslow Hill at dawn on Tuesday, I traveled to Hick's Run where I found a herd between RT 555 and Bennetts Branch. Eventually most of the elk crossed the river and again I concentrated on filming them, rather than taking stills, but I did pause at times to fire a few still frames. It is always a special treat to film and photograph elk in the water.
