Big Horn Mountains (10 pics)

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine has been trying to draw an elk tag in the big horns. He hasn't yet, but decided to go out scouting to just check the area out. I couldn't refuse the offer to go along, thinking of all the cool stuff we would see. We left on 7/1 and returned 7/5. It was a very fun trip. Not knowing where we would set up camp till that evening. Hiking in the middle of no where. Of course we saw elk.

I was surprised on how many moose we saw. I never saw one in the wild before. We saw 16 different moose on saturday alone.

Thank you! My husband used to hunt elk in the Bighorns. I always wanted to go just to see what you have showed us. I don't know--the only pics I saw were men in blaze orange with dead animals. The sunset, the mule deer, the head on moose pic--no wonder they loved going back year after year. Love these!

Very nice work, thanks for sharing! I like them all, especially those Western mtn. bluebirds and the two young bulls standing amoung the wild flowers!

Nice set of pics. Of course, when you go hunting you won't see that many elk.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
