Velvet Bull

A bull elk with his antlers in velvet near Chapin Pass in the Mummy Range. He patiently allowed me to get within about 20 feet to take this picture. Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

Great Shot!

I was camped in Oklahoma's Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge last October and heard two of these guys calling out from about 4 a.m. until sunrise. It was a Boy Scout campout and the next morning the older boys woke up in Charon's Garden surrounded by a small bison heard. It was a pretty cool weekend! --mark d.
