Prairie elk photos

Here’s proof of why we should all carry cameras when we go for a drive in the country and not have our eyes just on the road at all times.

Kansas Wildscape’s Charlie Black and I were coming back from photographing a cabin at McPherson State Lake when we spotted this bachelor herd of 20 bull elk on the Maxwell State Game Reserve.

Granted, they’re hardly very wild but it’s good to see them roaming on the prairies where they were common 150 years ago.
