Amazing that an animal so large can remain unheard and unseen in woods.
I was in woods one time in late fall. Had a feeling that I was not alone. Started looking around, and behind me, 30 yds away was a large bull, cow and yearling, just standing there looking at me. After a few moments they turned and walked silently away.
Birder friends and I saw a cow last evening. Watched it make it's way across a powerline somewhere outside The Glades last evening.
