San Luis NWR Tule Elk

On the way home from duck hunting yesterday, I took my guest, Scott Stouder, to San Luis National Wildlife Refuge to view the tule elk that are located inside a permanent high-fence enclosure.

Although we didn’t get close to the elk, I did manage to get a couple decent photos of bulls using my Nikon 300 MM lens. DSC_0072[1] three bulls SLNWR 1-13-16

These are very large bulls, they appear much larger than the bulls we see near our ranch.

 

Here’s another view.

In all we counted about 28 elk, of which eight or nine were bulls. This is a good place for viewing, especially if you’ve never seen a tule elk.
