    Hey Guys,
    Here are a few photos of some elk that passed in front of my bear cam. One of the bulls looks like he might be a nice one come fall. What do you all think?
    These photos were taken in southeastern Idaho. The damn wolves here are really bad and I don't see alot of elk tracks while bear hunting. However I am not seeing near the wolf sign that I have seen the past few years.

    Always fun to catch elk on a trail cam. All of those bulls look like they have good body size and that one definitely looks like he could grow a nice set of antlers this year.

    Must be tough to have to compete with the wolves for elk. I would guess the elk herds have dramatically dropped off in the past several years due to the increasing wolf population? I sure hope they never find their way back down to Colorado...

    Here's a pic i got in the neighborhood I live in back on May 15th. Lived here almost 5 years now and although I see herds in the hills behind the house, never seen one IN the neighborhood.

    Just a young bull, and I've definitely noticed the elk in the herd nearby are all very young looking with smaller bodies.
