Tule Elk

Hans' Daily Blog


After seeing the Elephant Seals last Friday, we headed over toward Tomales
Point, hoping to see some Tule Elk. The best way to spot them is by looking
for people standing next to their parked cars along the highway, peering through
their binoculars! Following this approach, we did indeed, see several bulls.


Elk were native to Point Reyes but, by 1860 had been hunted to extinction.
In 1978 2 bulls and 8 cows were reintroduced to the area, resulting in over 400
animals by 2009.
