    Yesterday I was out on the east side of Terre Haute and happened to see a field full of grazing deer. There were 26 does and 1 buck. Amazing... Then this afternoon I was driving in southern Indiana and ran across a field full of elk.. I mean what are chances of that. Anyway since I am photographer I had to stop and take pictures. I got charged by one while I trying to take his picture.. Pretty cool.. Here are the pics.. Tell me what you think.

    We have a place here outside of St. Louis that has Elk and Buffalo. I'll see if I can find some of the pix I took there. Photography is my main hobby.

    WOW!! My guess is that they are in a ranch, and not native to southern IN, but stranger things have happened.


    Cool Pics!!!:rockon:

    The farm they are on is only about 40 miles south east of T.H.

    I think it was either in Clay or Green County on road 157 I think. But pics are always cool. I sure am glad there a fence there or I am sure they would have run me down! That last one looked a little angry :peace:

    I believe there is an elk farm close to Midland just outside Linton.
