Elk (Cervus canadensis)

Each fall, we are fortunate to watch the elk of the area congregate for the fall rut. This past fall, we counted over 200 female and calf elk, along with a few bulls as they fed and wandered past the campgrounds. I have flown over the campgrounds a number of times during the winter and been able to observe a large number of them resting on the property. These animals are slowly crossing our friend and neighbour's property, which starts only meters away from the front entrance of the campground.
