Refuge Sleigh Rides Continue

sleigh rides

Despite the end to the supplemental feeding program next week, refuge officials point out that the horse–drawn rides on the National Elk Refuge are to continue through Saturday, April 6th.  As Refuge Biologist Eric Cole had indicated earlier, elk do not immediately leave the refuge when feeding ends, but tend to linger for sometime thereafter.  Furthermore, Refuge Spokesperson Lori Iverson says wagons can be substituted for sleighs when inadequate snow remains in the area. The rides are a popular way for people to view elk, enjoy the refuge, and watch for other wildlife. Hours of operation for those rides are from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm daily, including weekends. Tickets are sold at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center, on North Cache Street in Jackson, and those taking the rides have the opportunity there to learn more about the animals that make up the herd they are about to see.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
