Spring Creek Ranch Wildlife Refuge

After several days of snow, the wildlife of Jackson Hole were on the move this morning.

As I wound my way to Spring Creek Ranch this morning, the moose, elk and mule deer were all foraging along the side of the road paying little attention to passers-by.

Usually the mule deer bucks stay hidden, but they were out in the open. Seeing them was a special treat today.

The bull elk seem to be enjoying the Spring Creek Ranch wildlife refuge as they still have not moved to the National Elk Refuge just to the east.
