A bull elk stands on a ridge eating grass at dusk at the ATV Training Center in Knott County, Ky., on Jan. 22, 2011. The training center opened in 2007 on the site of a reclaimed surface mine and is a noted elk viewing area. Elk are most active near sunrise and sunset. Missouri reintroduced elk to the state in 2010 by transporting elk from Kentucky to Peck Ranch Conservation Area.
