    I work in an oil field in Wyoming. 300 sq miles of off road and 65 wells make up my route.
    We have a few good herds of elk out here. I missed a great photo the day before of these guys as i left the camera at home. They were within a 1/4 mile of where i spotted them yesterday. The guy on the left has already lost his antlers for the year. In the next week or so all these guys will be bald. Just a few hundred yards down the road was a herd of mule deer, another hundred yards further was a big herd of pronghorn along with 3 coyotes. And best of all NO people! Ha, gotta love Wyoming. I have a bunch more photos from last year if interested.

    Where I live is the self-proclaimed "Elk Capitol" of Michigan. Supposedly lots of the things around.
    The annual elk hunt seems to prove that they're actually here.
    Maybe I need to get out more.

    Agreed upon. Then post them here for us to see. Now let's see a new picture of that monster dog of yours standing next to something for good scale. :)

    Very nice photos bfunk! You have really captured the beauty of the state. (and judiciously avoided the acres of sagebrush part. ;) )

    Wow . . . fantastic photos BFunk . . . both fo the elk and the landscapes . . .some of the best I've seen posted here. Forget the travel brochures, just seeing these pics make me want to visit Wyoming (although technically I did visit a corner of Wyoming several years back when I visited Yellowstone and swung down a bit further to visit the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming.

    Sweet pix, bfunk. Congrats on the "butt-free" lifestyle...
    I have 862 days without a smoke, but more importantly,
    5779 without a drink (or some of that other stuff)!
