    That's cool. Looks like it worked.

    Do you have large herds, or just small ones?

    Mostly smaller ones but they will congregate in the larger fields . The total population is around a thousand or so. Almost got wiped out a few times due to brain worm but have bounced back well. Range tends to be limited to a couple counties but they do stray at times. Especially the young bulls.
    We came around a bend on that shelf road and surprised both of us. The bull wasn't too happy to see us so we actually hung back some

    They are beautiful animals to see! Iím glad the populations are coming back up. We have a lottery for tags here in Michigan, but not many get a tag and still fewer take an elk.

    That's the same system we have here. The areas are limited and tend to be on the fringes of the main herd location.

    Funny, during shed season people will actually follow the herds around including camping close by for weeks trying to grab the sheds. Nah.

    Just north of Gaylord,Mi is elk territory. Rarely will see one but theyíre there. From what Iím told itís a decent size herd.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
