New to elk hunting and while out in the woods I found this. Not sure what it is.

deff is and will be used as a wallow. looks like greqt elk country too. is there alot of cattle in that area? looks like a huge cattle path leading to a water source. u shouls set up a game cam, if its isolated u may have found your self your own little honey hole.

It looks like it could be a wallow or even mineral lick.

I have seen some wallowed areas quite a bit bigger than that. Did it smell like elk?

I didn't see any cattle in the area and no signs of cattle. there is a stream running near the far mountain. There is no stream or signs of a stream running from this area. It did smell a lot like elk. It is very isolated. The entire area to the right of it is very soft with a lot of water.

Sounds like a VERY good spot to be.

Find all the trails leading to that area, and keep an eye on them.

I guess if I sent you the cord for the elk refuge in Jackson you wouldnt believe me would ya? If so, I got this bridge.

But seriously thanks guys. I wasn't quite sure what I stumbled across. I just thought it had to be something pretty good.
