The clip was on CBS Sunday Morning show last week. I have written and gotten no where with the location. It's some where on the Tennessee ~ North Carolina boarder..
If you know the location please let me and every one else know this looks like a beautiful place to explorer.
You have to click on lower link.... sorry about the advertisement it takes a few seconds to load.

It almost could be anywhere near here in the Smoky Mountains (the lower elevations are at peak right now) but the presence of the Elk at this time of year means the most likely in the Cataloochee or Oconaluftee part of the park. There are directions, pictures and descriptions on the following web pages:

Thanks... for info. I was looking at the water falls as a reference point.

I wonder if the falls could be, The Bald River Falls?
There are so many places that the elk and turkey could be located. If you find out let us know.

Anywhere in the Appalachian Mountains is great, really.

I was guess maybe in the Cherohala Parkway area.. never been on the Parkway. Maybe an off road..I have looked at a number of water falls for reference but nothing matches so far.

I've been on and around the Cherohala Skyway and haven't seen that particular combination of open area, waterfall and elk. It does look similar to the open fields found around Cade's Cove. The Elk have been repopulated to a fairly small area of the park and they seem to return to those valley areas (the ones in the links) for the mating season. That's why I suspect your best bet is that area of the park. Cades Cove is over used and high traffic so I avoid it even in off season but there are parts of it that look similar as well.

The Cherohala looks most like the Blue Ridge Parkway with pullouts and vistas but no open fields like those in the video clip close to the parkway. Most of that area is still dense forest, even along some of the side roads you can wander around on (with a map!!!!). The Skyway is a beautiful drive but I would hesitate to recommend it from now until mid spring since there has already been snow up there and it is pretty isolated with no cell service for emergencies. All of the upper 2/3 of the mountains are gray now and the last of the color is at its peak in the lower elevations and valleys with some gorgeous oak trees in golden oranges.

Waterfalls, mostly small ones, can be found everywhere, often right along roads but where you can't pullover safely to take a picture.

It could be multiple locations edited together. One shot at the waterfall, a few of the turkey/elk.

I believe, my best guess, is that this is the Pisgah Game Lands in NC and the Elk Rivers Fall in TN. One road, Elk River Road, takes you to both. Well, the road ends in TN (near a huge open field) and then a long trail to the Falls. It's near Laurel Fork Park in TN. Gorgeous drive!!!
Go do a Google Earth view or Satellite view.

Also, you could probably find lots of videos on youtube with the Elk in this area.

Edited to add, this is near the tri cities area in TN... long drive, but closet in relation to what people would know.
