Elk and mule deer naturally transition through the property during the fall looking for companions or refuge. During the spring the migration of game rejuvenates with elk and mule deer seeking the cooler elevation and fresh mountain vegetation. Surrounding elk are also drawn through the property to visit the elk located within the elk ranch directly below the property. Wandering moose, black bears, mountain lions, coyotes, Merriam turkeys and small game pass through and around the property year round, providing excellent opportunities for photography or potential fall harvest.
