Glass Mountains after dark

Nope, no moose here. But there are elk, and they are apparently introduced. Readers, meet elk:

This individual was just north of the Brewster/Pecos line, cooperating except for sad nocturnal camera-phone autofocus issues. But such is life. We'll take our first elk for the blog however we can!

Elk in the Glass Mountains of Pecos Co. 29 May 2014
At least two individuals cooperated for close views the night of the 29th, thankfully no near misses as sometimes is the case - drive safe out there!

    My husband says there's been elk in the Glass Mtns for at least 50 years. He did lots of field work in the area way back in the day.

  2. There are lots of interesting spots for elk hunters in Texas. I believe that this state is one of the most preferred points if you are after having fun at the great outdoors.
