Steve Manzanares, from Darby, snapped this shot from his phone while riding his 4 wheeler near his home in Darby. It is a nice 6×6 bull elk, and although you might not be able to tell by the picture, it stood about 20 yards broadside–long enough for him to take this shot. It’s good to see elk in the Bitterroot!
It may be hard to believe, but hunting season is only a month away!
