|Jewell Meadows just about guarantees an elk sighting this time of year|
|Seaside - Gearhart|
No one is going to promise an elk sighting, but it's just about guaranteed this time of year at Jewell Meadows in the Oregon Coast Range.
The 2,940-acre state wildlife area has been offering them a winter home since 1969. Elk are provided a supplementary diet by the state fish and wildlife service, so it gives them incentive to stick around until things green up in the spring. The area is off limits to hunters, so the elk are safe from human intrusion.
