Remote trail cameras offer unique views into wildlife and wild landscapes many of us won’t see with our own eyes. Below is a Wyoming Game and Fish Department Facebook post about elk in northeast Wyoming just east of Yellowstone National Park.
Habitat and Access Biologist Craig Swanson captured these images on remote trail cameras at Sunshine Wildlife Habitat Management (WHMA) area west of Meeteetse. Sunshine WHMA provides important habitat for wildlife, such as elk, mule deer, antelope, and moose, as well as many birds and nongame species.
The WHMA is closed to human presence in the winter and spring to protect wildlife when they are most vulnerable. The area opened June 1 to public access by foot and horseback.
