Seen these elk in the Boxley Valley area of the Buffalo River in Arkansas. Kayaking and a short (1.6 mile) hike to a tall waterfall at Hemmed in Hollow was the focus of our trip there. It was still cool getting to see them on our way back.

Spent my summers growing up swimming in the Buffalo River at Grinders Ferry where 65 highway goes over the river. Grandparents had two farms just outside of Marshall Arkansas. Good times there. Lots of rock bluffs there in that area.

That is a cool area. Been there a couple times to see the elk. We stayed at a campground near Ponca. We came back from a hike one night to a big bull elk in the middle of the campground. It was an awesome sight. One of these days I hope to make the trip out west for an elk hunt.

Looks like that'd be all right, did ya wet a line at all. :cheers:
No, we were late getting on the river due to an unexpected detour in Harrison. :D

The people that were fishing said they weren't catching anything.

My Grandfather told a story of him noodling catfish along those rock bluffs back when there was no law against it. One about drowned him. He reached in and grabbed a handful of gills and the fish came out of the hole and took him down in the hole of water. He kept his senses and got his feet under him and walked that flathead towards the shallow part of the river until he got his head above water. Think he said it was around 75 lbs but we all know stories of big fish keep adding a pound or three each time the story is told...especially around the pot belly stove Grandpa had in his living room.
