2019—Rocky Mountain Elk

The Rocky Mountain Elk has the largest antlers of all of the elk subspecies according to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. This Rocky Mountain bull shows off his huge set of antlers. We saw him a few times in Yellowstone National Park last week. It is hunting season now in Montana and we saw hunters each day on our way into the park. Hunting is prohibited inside the boundaries of Yellowstone Nzational Park but hunting is allowed on National forest lands near the park boundaries. As long as this magnificent animal stays within the park boundaries, we might see him next visit.
