The hunt was successful for the week we had in the mountains of Island Park. We watched and stalked over 30 mule deer. Here are two I got a picture of.
But most of the deer seen were hidden in the thick brush like this one hidded in the scrub aspen.
Even though the elk season was not open yet, we saw over 40 head of elk. Here a bull elk clears one of the section fences that divide the BLM and Targhee National Forest grazing allotments. Several times we almost got run over by elk trying to get away from us.
We also saw small animals and song birds like this chipmunk and White-crowned sparrow.
We still have some hunting to do. Some whitetailed deer tags and elk tags will insure more wild days for us is Idaho.
