Still Walking With Elk

It’s a busy day and it keeps getting interrupted. I am working. I am writing and mentally I am getting ready for the trip down the mountain. My brother keeps coming down to let me know he can see some elk.  Can’t I just stop and look. No, I have to work, but take a picture and we’ll look at them later. He’s not loving the answer.

I am making this post so that perhaps he will know I am thinking of him as I work.

In the velvet

Elk drop their antlers every year. Once they are dropped they are called sheds. While they are growing they are tender and covered with a soft fur like covering to protect them as they grow.  When they reach the point when they stop growing they itch the elk rubs off all the velvet. They look pretty shaggy for 

It’s snowing

So how many elk do you see in this picture?

Large rack in the velvet

Another in the velvet. Not too heavy yet. You can see that this are much taller and the other was side. They are all different.

Yup, I see it

Kind of makes you wonder what they are looking at doesn't it? It's pretty clear that some thing has their attention and it's not the camera.

Snow Nose

Sad, the person who labeled it thought they were looking at a moose. This is not a moose. It's an elk that was foraging for food and ended up with snow.

What do you think?

  1. These are many noble animals. The red deer is a valuable hunted object, which is being cared for and its population maintained. Normally hunters are allowed to hunt only for a short period of time. An exception is the recruit hunting, which aims to maintain the good condition of the population and the quality of the hereditary material. The hunting trophy is his horn.
