Arkansas elk bugling…anyone checked on ours?
Steve Patten is a birder and photographer, an Alpine Shop associate and Facebook friend of Jo’s. Steve brought our attention to these two videos “by a neighbor of mine” called comptonphotographer of elk bugling during the rut earlier this week in the Boxley Valley, near Ponca (Buffalo National River) Arkansas.
Anyone seen what our elk are up to? Let us know. If you get video, please share, and we will. Be aware, though, that the Peck Ranch elk-viewing route is CLOSED this weekend, Oct. 7-9, due to a youth whitetail deer deer hunt.
You might want to preview before sending the kids to these links: nothing more than boy elk chasing girl elk, but there might be some explanation needed for the younger ones.
