Elk Herd standing and walking in snow
$100.00 – $1,500.00
In the winter elk congregate at the lower elevations where the snow is shallower and the weather milder. Herds of cows, calves, and young bulls are led by older cows in their daily search for food. When feeding, individuals scatter out and use their front feet to paw snow away from buried grass. If the older cows decide to move on, the rest of the elk slowly coalesce into small groups, then string out in lines converging to the lead animals' trails.
