National Elk Refuge.. Jackson Hole, WY

by Steve Cochrane December. 27, 2019 528 views

The National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole, Wyoming was established in 1912. Today thousands of elk winter in the refuge, which is located just north of the town of Jackson, Wyoming. The elk begin their migration out of the high meadows in the fall, usually after the first snow storm. They stay in the refuge through the spring, when food becomes more abundant. Winter is the most populated time for wildlife viewing at the refuge. Thousands of elk descend upon the area to feed on native vegetation.

Great shots !!  I've left my heart there a couple times. Our last time there was in mid-January 
of this year. It was absolutely beautiful as you have found it. If you get a chance visit Kindle or 
Amazon to view a book by a friend of mine who lives there and works for a tour company.
The name of the book is --- 50 Wildlife Hotspots ,,, Grand Teton National Park and surrounding 
communities. By Moose Henderson who is a super guy. Extremely informative and well structured.

Bill,
Thank you for the comment. I love the Teton and Yellowstone area and try to get there at least once a year. I will definitely look into Moose Henderson and his book. I always enjoy talking to people who know the area. I've always tried to photograph the great gray owl in that area with no luck. Maybe he can help me out with that. Thanks again
Steve

I think he had a pic of an injured one on his facebook page the last day or two.
