I can see my cattle using OnX. Haven’t seen elk but The cattle very clearly. So it’s possible.
I don't have the link handy, but I know that I've seen pictures of elk on open ridges in Google earth.
Have seen elk. A few years back was looking at GE at the spot I'd camp in a wilderness area and seldom ever saw hunters. The image was from early October the previous Fall and the trail I walked to and from camp every day thru a grassy stretch clearly showed as did my little back packing tent!
Google Earth pic from a few years ago showing some elk.
I once saw my elk camp on GE. Wall tent, camper, 4Runner. That was sort of interesting. Another time I was scouting a new area and the view was from the previous September. Was great because I could see where all the other camps were located and plan accordingly.
Yep I have seen elk, and of course cattle.
Bull elk at a wallow. You can see the shadow of its horns on the light colored soil bank

Bison in Grand Canyon National Park

Yup. Seen elk above treeline in a couple units.
Do you guys have a live version of google earth? I look at images of my property and they are 5-10 years old. So who cares if I see elk, they aren't there now. oz
I have seen elk on GE before. I won't post the images on here though, you guys will have to find them for yourselves :)
Click on the date on the lower left portion on the screen. There is a slide bar which you can choose the aerial photo date.
Oz ahhhh cause its kinda cool and might confirm something you suspected I would take it as a giant omen the Hunt Gods says you were right...... go there
I pulled up my property on GE once and saw an orange spot. Getting closer I could see it was me in my Kubota mowing out a trail. Kinda cool, but eerie at the same time.

Does anyone on bowsite have clearance to share images from the KH-12 reconnaissance satellite? If so, PM me I have some questions. ;)
ok the date change was cool. but the best I can get is 2017. and like drycreek I found the kubota in the photo, cool.
