Wild Elk Viewing

Wild elk and wild life of all kinds visit our ranch's fields and creek. Elk, deer, bear, and wild turkey are just some of the wildlife of America tourists and photographers come here to see.

Looks Like
an Elk Ranch

Our cattle ranch looks more like an elk ranch around dawn and dusk during Fall, Winter, and Spring.

Arkansas even put up an "ELK CROSSING" sign on Highway 65 right by our rental cabins office!

In the early morning light, it's hard to tell the cattle from the elk bulls and cows without a zoom lens.

Elk viewing is a favorite agritourism activity on our Buffalo River cattle ranch. Elk picture courtesy of AR Game & Fish Commission.

Most people think of Jasper and Ponca and the Boxley Valley for elk.

But the herd around Tyler Bend
- right up the road from us -
is growing fast.

And it's less crowded with tourists here!

We have people stopped along the highway taking pictures for weeks in the Spring and Fall. When our guests step out on the porch, they can sometimes see the elk herd along the edges of our fields.

"We had a great time! We saw the elk down along the edge of the woods EVERY morning and EVERY afternoon."

Wild Life Watching

Trophy elk enjoy the sunshine along our woods. Photography provided by Cathy Lee Miller of Texas.

This big bull kept hanging around in the open all Fall and Winter. Nobody told him elk are supposed to be shy.

Usually the best American wildlife viewing times are only early, early in the morning and late in the afternoon. But this elk bull posed for pictures all day long.

Watching elk, fishing in the creek, wildlife photography, nature walks, and four-wheeling are some of things families and church groups like to do here.
