Yeah I really don't know why the rangers turn the other way when people drive in with a pickup bed full of hay. Seen it multiple times, yes with rangers out on the road too.
The elk in the incident above looked to be about the age and size of the young males that last year in an elk jam were all simultaneously feeding from a white truck with nc plates and then one walked over to my car and I thought he was going to stick his head in my drivers side window- probably wanted to know what food I had brought him.
