Here I sit on the deck off my room at the ELK REFUGE INN in Jackson, WY. A few hundred yards out front are thousands of elk. With the spotting scope I was able to pick out several huge 8x7 bulls and many in the 380 class. On the drive over we stopped in Alpine and looked at thier refuge where close to a thousand elk and still more big bulls were hanging out. The drive up the canyon to Jackson has another refuge along the river with several hundred elk. The owners of this motel put out feed in the winter for deer on the back side of the motel and there was a 160ish 4x4 standing on the back step an hour ago and several does and small bucks hanging around. YOU GOTTA LOVE IT. Plan to hang out on back side of the refuge tomorrow and look for Sheep and big cats or wolves. Gotta enjoy it while I can, Tuesday its back to work!
