"All of these shots were taken near Buffalo Pass at a heavily used water hole," says local hunter Bill Van Ness. "The bull moose was the boss of the woods and actually came by me at 10 years, tearing up every tree in his path. He had a pretty severe attitude. The elk was in front of my trail cameras daily. He was fun to monitor. One morning he passed through a camera, then four hours later he passed through another one two miles away. The bear is one of nine different bears I was able to catch on camera in the area. You couldn't set foot in the woods without coming across a bear up there."
