Tel: 307 733 9212's insider take:

If you'd prefer to see elk in the wild rather than just on your plate, they can't be missed here. Every winter, the 25,000-acre refuge—which is managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service—is home to some 7,500 elk, the largest herd in the world. Although drivers can spy them right off Highway 89 (a mere three miles north of downtown), it's more entertaining to go by horse-drawn sleigh. Forty-five-minute joyrides leave from the Jackson Hole/Greater Yellowstone Visitors Center (at the N. Cache Drive address above) on a first-come, first-serve basis from mid-December to the end of March.
