Took these pics around Jackson Hole and the Gros Ventre range over Christmas 2012. Saw plenty of Elk.

These pics were of a herd of bison, just north of Jackson Hole, up near the airport.

lol Next time I go to my shack (if I can remember to bring a camera), I'll take a pic or two of the herd on the side of the road enroute. Really surprised me, first time I saw it. Good-sized herd, as well.

There's a camel on the side of the other road to my hooch (the Cherokee Trail of Tears). Pretty sure there used to be a zebra out there, too.

Elk is normally delicious. Bad news if those diseases affect the meat....

Not bad. But compared to the 11,000 head that used to be found there, that's not very many. The wolves took a majority of them out for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while many others scattered, leaving roughly 3000 remaining in the area.

As I understand it, the locals are both relieved and pissed. Relieved because their trees and gardens are no longer being browsed to death and pissed because that giant herd was a major draw for tourists.
