Roosevelt Elk – Awkward Moments

This bull keeps his cows in a tight group.

Good Protector

He’s a good protector.  I hope he survives the hunt!

30 in the herd

There’s about 30 cows and calves in the herd.  The spikes have been driven off.  Every once in a while we’ll see them alone or 3 or 4 spikes together; mostly after dark.

Reminds me of trying to sleep in head-gear for my braces when I was a teen; just a little awkward.

I love to listen to their calls when they get separated from the herd.
