Like to add a moment I had last October. Returning from a successful Colorado 2nd rifle elk season. Fits in with the above publication. On IH-25 there along the Canadian river bottom. South of Raton NM and north of the Wagon Mound. Old son and I came upon a pretty good size herd of elk crossing the interstate. About 200-250 animals. Mostly cows. A few raghorns and spikes. One really nice old bull. After they got back on plains on west side of hwy, I says to son, "Look! Now that’s the way it was here back then!!! And that’s a small herd!!!!" It was a cool sight! Heck, I’ve seen em before between Las Vegas and Raton. Elk on the plains! Just this herd looked special. Was just one of those moments.
