Tailfeather — pig wallow, elk wallow … they all look pretty much the same except the surrounding vegetation. Elk wallows of course smell like bull elk in rut. I’m betting a hog waller don’t smell so sweet!
And you sure have it nailed about the impact of wildness on sanity. As wild country disappears, we become ever less human, ever less sane. People who enjoy it yet don’t fight to protect it disappointment me terribly. I think trad bowhunters are among the most tuned-in to this reality.
Thanks for sharing the great pics! dave
