Winter walks by the elk refuge β„β˜Ί #jackson #jacksonhole #wyoming #nationalelkrefuge #winter #snow
We have a habit of stopping in at the @anvilhotel to say hi to Bella the lobby dog and grabbing a cup of our coffee before hitting the road. Looks like we’re not the only ones! Thanks for submitting this #mysnakerivercup photo. πŸ“· @miabelleskin

Beautiful morning at work ❄️ #jacksonhole #winter #thatswy #nationalelkrefuge
The bighorn sheep have returned to Miller Butte! Every winter, this herd of of ungulates migrates down to lower elevations to seek out better foraging and warmer temperatures. #PhenologyFriday . . PC: Jeff Mulligan
Always such a shame to see them go out like this! The #migration is starting and the #deadheads are already starting on the #nationalelkrefuge !

While we're all target locked on ski season opening in just 10 days, this is also a great time to visit if you want to see some of our fauna friends throughout Jackson Hole. #bighorn #jacksonhole #nationalelkrefuge #thatswy
We've had one of the best falls in recent memory, but elk are starting to move into their winter home on the National Elk Refuge. Have you spotted any there yet? πŸ“· by @itsdorgan
We simply call days like today β€œWednesday” here. . . . #thatswy #wildlifephotography #jacksonhole #mygrandteton #gtnp #nationalelkrefuge #moose #bighornsheep #mybackyard
With duck season opening this weekend I can’t help but look back at my last morning in Wyoming watching the sunrise and the ducks enjoy the beautiful landscapes of jackson hole! . . Follow @finandfeatherflyfishing What a great sunrise on my last day in Wyoming! Watch all the deal and other waterfowl come in on Flatt Creek at the National Elk Refuge. God makes some awesome stuff! #wildlife #wyoming #jacksonhole #ducks #duckhunting #nationalelkrefuge #conservation #lovetheoutdoors #nature #sunrise #sunset #picoftheday
The painting that changed my life. It was the 995th painting I numbered in my career. If you're discouraged about where your art career is, just keep pushing. The best art you can produce only comes after hundreds of paintings that aren't the best. And this one, which won the Prix de West Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1987, was the direct result of one of my art failures. Two years before this painting fell off my brush and won me the biggest award of my career to that point, the same show rejected a painting of mine because it didn't have a defined subject and the landscape was competing with itself for attention. I didn't let that mistake happen in this painting. It's pretty obvious that the blazing light across the cliffs and summit of the Sleeping Indian is the only subject in this painting. I deliberately muted everything else, and have been glad I did ever since. Original hangs in @nationalcowboymuseum. Just. Keep. Painting. #prixdewest #prixdewestaward #nationalcowboymuseum #westernheritagemuseum #art #fineart #jimwilcox #jimwilcoxart #artgallery #awardwinningart #landscapeart #landscapepainting #landscape #sunsetpainting #mountainsunset #mountains #sunlit #lastrays #sunsetart #sunset #nationalelkrefuge #sleepingindian #elkrefuge #sheepmountain #jacksonhole #myview #jacksonwy #thatswy #artfail #artencouragement

The bighorns are back...and the little ones too. #bighornsheep #nationalelkrefuge
National elk refuge, with all that snow in the mountains the animals are starting to move to winter ground. #springcreekranchnaturalist #nationalelkrefuge #usfwsnationalwildliferefugesystem #wygfd #grandtetons #publiclands #jhdreaming #jhwildlifefoundation
Big Horn Sheep Wyoming 2015 Now this is my kinda wildlife shoot, where the animals ate hanging out twenty yards from the road. #bighornsheep #bighorn #nationalelkrefuge #jacksonhole #wyoming

I would be willing to freeze my butt off and go on a sleigh ride in the Winter to see the thousands of elk that migrate here for the season. #jacksonhole #wyoming #nationalelkrefuge
According to the @nationalparkservice , Grand Teton #NationalPark has many diverse communities that support a variety of birds. Some of the largest and smallest #NorthAmericanBirds inhabit or pass through the park and parkway. The calliope hummingbird, the smallest North American bird, weighs less than a tenth of an ounce. (This bird can be found around blooming scarlet gilia and near willow shrubs.) The trumpeter swan, the largest waterfowl in North America, can be found at Oxbow Bend, Swan Lake and Flat Creek in the #NationalElkRefuge . (Trumpeter swans are often found in pairs that mate for life.) Any guess which bird is pictured above? Photo by @jorge_espina. #JacksonHoleWILD
Besides the federal-run National Elk Refuge, Wyoming manages 22 feedgrounds west of the Continental Divide. Altogether, about 20,000 elk spread across six different herds in northwestern Wyoming are fed, though the Jackson Herd, which traditionally used four of these feedgrounds, is by far the largest. || Last year about 1,000 elk that wintered in the Gros Ventre River valley, shown here, while about 10,000 elk spent the winter on the National Elk Refuge, a number that is double what a federal plan calls for. Read more about the issue of feeding elk in the winter issue of @jacksonholemag. πŸ“· by @itsdorgan

Trying something new with my camera and introducing some motion blur to things. The golden grasses of the elk refuge were a great place to experiment, the color as the first light hit was extraordinary and made for some really different images!

Some pictures from Day 4 of our move from CA to NY. Wyoming! Started in Jackson and ended in Casper. we went through #grandtetonnationalpark , #nationalelkrefuge and it was so worth the windy motion sick roads. We saw 2 bison right by the road and herds further away. We saw elk and some beautiful landscapes as we drove through Wyoming. #wyoming #landscape #wyomingphotographer #visitwyoming

Our irrigation program is wrapping up for the season. Many thanks to our lead irrigator, Missy Gresen, for both her hard work and great shots from the field. #nationalelkrefuge #wildliferefuge #irrigation #wildlifemanagement #habitat
