Students and parents from Preston Middle School installed a second wildlife guzzler at the top of Sulzer Gulch at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch (sylvandale.com) on December 1, 2012. Exactly a month later, on New Years Day, the cameras were checked. The amount of wildlife activity at this new guzzler is nothing short of amazing. Elk, Mule Deer, and Merriam's Turkey frequented the area within 24 hours, beginning on December 2nd.
Note how the first deer and elk are a little hesitant to use it. It may have been that our human scent was still present. Who knows. Within minutes they were enjoying some fresh cold water that previously wasn't available.
