I got that email last month.. Showed it to my boys.. They asked how long they'd lose their hunting privlages if they were to shoot one in the front yard like that.

Told them, that from the law.. Prolly about five years and the fines for shooting in a residential area.

Then I told them that I'd probably be in front of the judge right there with them when we all got sentenced!


Na... Just jokin! Beautiful aren't they!

Oh my goodness, I just have to get the mags out and get dinner ready.

I cannot resist the ... must... not... .. must not shoot....

I had several chances to shoot a very nice 8 point buck at my sister's place this hunting season. She considers the deer as her pets. She feeds them corn and other treats. Some of the doe's come within a few feet of her, but the buck is still pretty wild. I had him in my crosshairs more than once, but honored her wishes. She doesn't mind me shooting turkeys or coyotes though.

Those pictures look fake, they're so close!

Cool to see them like that, even if you can partake of any of their backstraps.:D

Time to break out the archery gear and canvass the neighbors in advance about following a blood trail onto their property!

Yeah, Estes Park is crawling with 'em. I've seen some really nice elk there. This one was grazing by our rented cabin one year. They're beautiful to watch, but man, keep your distance! The grandson and I got pretty close, but we made sure to stay on the far side of that big flower garden.

It's too bad that we've pushed these beautiful animals out of their traditional range so that we can put up more of our cardboard mansions. It's pathetic and just not right. Look at the pictures of these animals closely, for they won't be with us for long,

I've seen plenty of elk tracks in my deer hunting area, but never an elk. OTOH, I've seen large herds on a dairy farm next to a freeway where the hunters can't get them. They are not stupid animals...

About 11 years ago we were at Redwood National Park and a herd of them came right into our campground. Beautiful, majestic animals. I would be thrilled if they came into my neighborhood, but that's not likely to happen.

I'd rather have one in my freezer than on my lawn.

Whats America coming to when gangs of roving elk come invading your homes. Well in our neck of the woods we get black bear and big elk/deer hanging out side our homes, but they are not so bold to do it in broad daylight like that.

Well, if I saw one walking down the street in Port Lavaca, I'd call the Victoria zoo and ask 'em what's up.

But, then, they ain't got gators in Montana, so I guess we're even. :D

What the?? :eek:

How stupid are these elk? Wait, no, I guess they are smart -they know they're safe when they're out of the woods and in the neighborhood.

What part of Montana is this?

Of course they are smart, didn't you notice the diversion they posted on the periphery, sure got me distracted.

So I know surprisingly little about animal behavior but, are these Elk safe around kids and such? Do they spook like horses? What is proper etiquette around an elk, other than I assume they always have the right of way.

I was driving to my folk's house for Christmas eve dinner a couple years ago. Right in the middle of town I saw three deer standing in a front yard. At first I thought they were fake, but than one of them moved.

No idea where they came from or how they got there as there are no places deer live anywhere near the area I saw them in.

Elk generally do not attack. A cow with a calf could be dangerous. Bulls in rut with cows often attack vehicles, do a search on youtube for "elk attacks car" and something should come up. Personally I feel that anything weighing 5 times my size deserves some space.

I am waiting for you to give up your house and your car etc... Awww, I'll bet you want to keep your house... don'tcha? You just have a problem with telling OTHERS how to live their lives... Gotcha

My folks live just outside Missoula in a little area called Huson. They had 50 elk in their front yard the other morning when they left for work.

Sure the Elk are safe but the Kids aren't. No wild animal/human contact is ever truly safe not even in the most controlled conditions.

They have been doing that in Estes Park since the 1960's.

So if one wanders into an attached garage and corners the owner, does the Castle Doctrine apply? :D "Honey, make room in the freezer!"

Elk in rut can be very dangerous. My brother was just telling me the other day when he was once at Yellowstone 4 cars were attacked. This was recent.

Well, there two things at work here. Everyone who I ever heard say this wanted THEIR house in the woods, then no one else.
Secondly, elk don't pay taxes, so as long as citizens are crying for more government "programs", you'll have more development.
