Taken exactly one year ago at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone Park. This is the BIG BULL
riding herd ( trying to ) over the dozen or more
Elk Doe's around the town. Seems they come to town and can not resist the lush green grass of the
well watered lawns.
This fellow did pretty much destroy a Toyota that he took a disliking to. At almost a thousand pounds
a Bull Elk is not to be tested at this time of year.

Terrific catch, Jack! And I can just hear it now: "But officer, I haven't had a thing to drink. An elk really DID do this to my car. Honest!"

Fantastic capture, Jack! Don't know how you sat on this one for so long! I would have it on my wall and would be selling it.

A fascinating story behind the picture. I have read and seen many of these big boys do some damage as they are not in the mood for anything interfering with his harem. Such a spectacular, powerful, and beautiful beast my friend. Gorgeous capture.

A beautiful animal, but I think I prefer to see a photo of him than meet him in person, Jack! I don't handle pain real well!

Fantastic capture Jack and one that definitely belongs on the wall, going straight into my favorites. To bad you didn't have a picture of the Toyota, I would love to have seen what type of damage this big guy caused.
