Elk Galore!

in nature •  7 months ago

This was the first year that I was able to pick up elk on my game cams. There has been a small herd that roams through the hills behind my property for a couple of years but is now there are 40 - 60 to 60 of them. I have yet to see the bull, but the older cows do a good job of keeping an eye out for the herd. There are quite a few yearling's in this herd.

I will let the video clips speak for themselves:

I love the 4th one! I have had deer come within a few feet of me, but was glad I was not holding the camera for this elk. Its mother was too close.

Enjoy!

Yes really a greate videos...within the small videos we can see a beautiful places and animals..@r2cornell sir did a greate job for us...if you are free then see old posts also ...you whould see a beautiful flowers also..

@r2cornell,
Wow you are living near to forest! I wish one day I could do the same! This is amazing!How could you capture these videos? Amazing, shame i didn't found you before! Nature is everything! Wish you a happy new year friend!

Cheers~

·

Thank you very much. I use what they call a game camera. You then set it for motion detection. It even takes pictures or video clips after dark. I like setting mine for a short video clip. I attach it to a tree pointed toward a game trail. In the area I had two of my cameras there are a couple of game trails that merge.

Yes I am very lucky to leave near a forest. It is just a short walk from my home. Glad you enjoyed. I have a lot of video c clips I am still going through. I saved most on my computer and backed up on my server.

Happy New Year

@r2cornell,
I think you can capture more animals to your camera! This is interesting! Is there wolves and bears in the area? I wish you will post those video clips as well! By the way I have a suggestion, better you try DTUBE and YOUTUBE! Coz in that way you can earn a decent profit as well!

Cheers~

·
·

There are wolves periodically that come through but have not stayed. Lots of coyotes and somewhere I have some clips of them. I have seen sign of black bear, but have yet to see one. I did get a chance a few years ago watching a mountain lion go through my pasture near the barn. We have moose in the area but have not gotten any on game cameras yet.

In the Spring when the snow starts to melt I will get them set up for the spring, summer and fall. I should get more interesting video clips. I need to go through the manual and see if I can lengthen the time frame. I also want to set one for pictures only to how that goes.

Someone else mentioned Dtube and Youtube. I plan on investigating them. Thank again!

@r2cornell,
I need to go through the manual and see if I can lengthen the time frame. I also want to set one for pictures only to how that goes.
Then you have to use a video editing tool! Or you can send me what are the videos you want to align and make a video! I will help you, no worries!

Cheers~

·

Thank you!

wow, incredibly close- you aren't kidding! just as i'm typing this to you some owls are hooing! nature galore. once when i was hiking along the "lost coast" of california, we got to a place where there were all the male elk who had lost that years go at the harem, alllll gathered together. huge elk, like 20 of them, and they were used to humans and would be like 15 ft (no joke) from your campsite. we had our large guard dog (a pyrenees) with us at the time and at first were freaked out and kept our distance, but slowly realized they were just so used to humans they didn't really care. didn't turn my back on them still tho! haha but got some great pics.

its always a fun time to see your post and today too you shared amazing videos thanks a lot :)

Wow really wonderful place you have..i never see a such wonderful things before in my life ...really looking awesome...thank you for sharing with us...@r2cornell

·

I think you lived near to forest...its really a nice and you are luckey to have that type of nature every one want that type of nature and surrounding... you are very luckey to have that...

·

Thank you

·
·

Always a pleasure...
@r2cornell did you face any problems from the animals in surronding like wolfs and others...

·
·
·

Periodically a wolf or two will pass through but none have stayed long. When they show up the coyotes move away until the wolves leave. We used to have a mountain line (a few years back) but I have not seen or heard it for several years.

·
·
·
·

Ho thats good...but litle bit feels scary ..when they came near to us...did you felt scary or not when wolfs came..any weapons or sticks you took for protect your self

·
·
·
·
·

At times I will carry a gun with me, but usually wolves will stay clear, as do the coyotes.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Ho ok... did you face any attacks from animals and use the gun for hunting ...

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I have never needed to face an attack...but if it is in Springtime when animals have their young, any of them could be aggressive. But, I do hunt in the Fall to get a lot of our winter meat supply.

Hey friend welcome back, nice videos , how r you

·

Thank you! It is good to be back.

its excellent thanks for sharing such post i enjoyed it :)

·

Thank you. Glad you enjoyed.

Nice video bro. You are very lucky cause you can see them so close. Are they harm human?

·

Thank you! They always could be dangerous. More so when they have young.

·
·

Ok.... How many type of animals live there? Like Wolf,bear are other Ferocious animals also live there?

·
·
·

Very few wolves. Some coyotes, some black bear and once in awhile you will spot a mountain lion (cougar).

·
·
·
·

Lion is also there???? 🙄 You don't feel scared???

·
·
·
·
·

Mountain Lion yes. Also called Cougar.

When one is around we all stay alert, but seldom are there problems.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Bro can you visit my blog? I have posted some Photography related post you may like. I want to know your feedback. @r2cornell

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yeah i visited your blog just now..good content you have posted..keep it up...

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yes I will visit you blog. I will load it now and then have a look in the morning.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Bro if lions are came near to you
..you need to have a premisions to shoot that or directly shoot..why because in my country if we want to shoot a line we must have a permissions from government bro...@r2cronell

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

To shoot a Mountain Lion (cougar) you need a hunting license and a tag. As long as I am not threatened I would not shoot. I do hunt for meat, but I do not enjoy the killing part. It is just part of life. I wouldn't get a tag for a cougar...they have their role to play in natures scheme. But if I felt threated or if it was going after one of my dogs then I would protect myself or my dogs. Great question

Lucky you. Here in Nepal, We have many national parks like Chitwan National park(listed in UNESCO world heritage) where one can explore wild animals in the wild environment. And we have also zoo where one can get to see many such wild animals in a short time with their brief description.

Love so much that. Resteemed your post.
