Boys in the Hood

With low light, a zoom lens, and no tripod there wasn’t much chance of a stellar shot, but I thought you might enjoy the “boys” I’ve been seeing every morning.

For those unfamiliar with agriculture in the Rocky Mountain West, it’s worth mentioning that it is estimated 80% of Wyoming’s native animals depend on private riparian areas at some time in the year.*  My neighbor fed 20 plus mature bull elk on their private hay meadow for about a month (and still counting) this winter.

The interwoven use of private and public lands by both livestock and wildlife is an integral part of life in the West. For more on big game use of private lands you can read University of Wyoming Extension publication B-1150.
