I am going to look up that book kiasl, thanks.
Zapatay the Elk are not around as often as deer but I do hop to get a photo of one in my yard. I have some photos of Elk in Oregon and California all though.
Applestar I have found a number of references on animal droppings and learned to know the differences, you may say I know my Sh--t.
I have also seen some MT. lion droppings and claw marks in the woods along with coyote. Coyotes are noise beasts the sound like a pack of dogs when they are hunting.
This is one of the views in my yard rainbowgarderner, I have to say your name brings good thoughts of a nice day out doors.
