The big poo at my fingertips and the hair are that of elk. The other poos are from deer, though they are slightly different sizes and shapes than each other.
The next day, my mom babysat Zoralee for Jason and I to ride Harley and Dusty Brown (those are the two horses Jason broke last summer) into the same woods. We went looking for elk and found the group of younger bulls, first by their musty smell, and then by sight through the trees about 80 yards away. They don't spook away when we're on horseback, though they don't stand around to chat. They are magnificent, but we weren't close enough to get good pictures with a point-and-shoot camera.
You can see a bull elk between the trees, above Harley's neck.
(the body is a lighter tan, and the dark head is to the right)
Maybe if you click on the photo, it'll get bigger for you.
