Guess Where?!?!

Can you guess where these photos where taken? All were taken on the same day, all in the same state, all within 20 miles (except the bison). All except with bison and antelope within 1 mile. All on or near public land open for hunting. All taken on the day of a bunny hunt.

The Sheep should be a give-away

ps I took al the photos.

Looks like New Mexico, or maybe Colorado.

G'day, I know. It's not Australia, dont think it is Europe or Africa. Doubtful it is South America or Antarctic. I think it must be North America, probably the USA.

I would have to say Western Wyoming (Between Kemmerer and Jackson), or South Eastern Idaho.

Utah
Buffalo and sheep - Antelope Island
Elk - Scofield Reservoir area or perhaps near Hardware Ranch.
Antelope - I'd guess west side of GSL or between Price and Green River
Rabbit - haven't got a clue.

Correct!!!!

JKump is correct. These photos were all taken within 30 miles of Manilla, UT (the far NE corner of the state near Flaming Gorge, UT with the exception of the Bison which were take on Anelope Island (in the Great Salt Lake).

The rabbits were taken on the ranch of a friend who incidentally is a professional hunting guide specializing in Cougar hunts (guides for elk, deer, sheep, moose and deer as well.)

Somewhat correct.
Only the bison were photgraphed on Antelope Island and to my knowledge there are no sheep on the island. Antelope were reintroduced in 1993. The American Bison, introduced to the island in 1893 number between 500 - 700 ( I believe they cull some and sell some each year).

The sheep were photographed at the mouth of Sheep Creek Canyon, a couple of miles from beautiful downtown Manilla, UT

The elk could have been photographed in a dozen or more places in Utah so this mistake is easily forgiven. The elk were photographed between McKinnon, WY and Manilla (just across the border into Utah) as were the antelope.

The rabbits photos (and bodies) were taken within a couple of miles of Manilla. There are soooo many rabbits in the Flaming Gorge area that there like vermin. Getting a daily limit of 10 bunnies never takes more that a couple of hours of fast and furious (and safe) shooting.

Also, as a result there are also lots of coyote, bobcats, and other predators.
