There's a huge herd of elk in the church's meadow, between Cedar Circle and Evans View. This is the biggest elk herd I have seen in many years.

This is just part of the herd:

Magnificent animals, indeed. We saw some guy with the bright orange hunting vest and a rifle walking in that field today at 4:45 p.m. He had parked his dark blue Ford 4-door pickup at the locked gated entrance. Didn't think you could hunt there. And looking at the hunting regulations, is the season still open?

You are also not allowed to hunt after dark, so probably wrong on three counts: location/permission, season, and time of day.

Private land elk tags are valid until January 31st in most places and you can hunt 30 minutes after sunset which was at 4:37 yesterday. As long as he has permission he is 100% legal

Ah, I didn't know private land tags had a different season. Thanks for the info! Still pushing it pretty close as far as time of day, but that's for the game wardens to worry about, right?

Sunset was 4:37, so the hunter had until 5:07 to hunt. Fully legal.
