Selkirk Stream Crossing

March 25, 2013 - 11:02am -- idfg-mlucid

Last fall while I was out elk hunting I found a wildlife stream crossing in Idaho's Selkirk Mountains. It looked like it was occasionally used by wildlife so I set up a trail camera. Between the time I set the camera up on December 8 and when I took it down on March 24 there were 189 motions on the camera and a few nice wildlife shots.

The first visitor was a bull elk - where was he when I was hunting?

After about a month a bobcat passed by.

Let's zoom in on that shot - looks like it's seen the camera!

A cow and calf moose pass by.

Varied thrush.

Looks like this bull elk has lost his antlers. You can tell it's a bull by his massive neck - he'll grow a new set of antlers over the summer.

Nice shot of a mule deer doe.
