The elk in the Greater Yellowstone area are always interesting to watch. This time of year they are still growing their antlers. One morning we were out on an early game drive and saw this fine looking bull elk with a massive set of antlers. They still had their velvet but he was quite an impressive specimen. In late September, the elk rut begins in earnest and there is a a lot of bugling of the elk, and the clashing of antlers as they fight to prove their dominance.
