    Elk jump

    So while I was out shed hunting yesterday, I came up over the top of a ridge and found a spot where it was a big rock face. Off the rock face there was at least 50 dead elk in a pile. You could see where the elk must have had something chasing them and just ran right off the side of this rim rock. Has anyone else ever seen or heard of something like this? It was crazy!

    You should let the fish and game know about it

    Unfortunantely, I did not get a picture. I didn't have my camera with me and my phone was dead. I'm half tempted to walk back and take a picture now!

    Wow that's something you don't hear about or see often. Kind of reminds me of the way I've heard some Indians used to hunt buffalo sometimes. They would run them off cliffs.

    Yep! We have a historical site here from just that! I'm thinking this may have been like a pack of wolves or something!

    That is too bad. How can we help finish tempting the other half?

    My curiosity borders on a raccoon's.

    Yep....Hells Half Acre near Powder River, Wyoming. Used to stay in the RV park there during hunting season. Had a motel and cafe....too bad it's closed now!
