The Elk, A Hunter's Dream
A large, adult male or bull Rocky Mountain elk.The elk or wapiti deer (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species of deer in the world and one of the largest land mammals in North America. In the deer family (Cervidae), only the larger moose (Alces alces) and the sambar (Rusa unicolor) rival the elk in size.

Elk range in forest and forest-edge habitat, feeding on grasses, plants, leaves, and bark. Although native to North America, they have adapted well to countries where they have been introduced, including Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand. Their great adaptability may threaten endemic species and ecosystems into which they have been introduced.

 Male elk have large antlers which are shed each year. Males also engage in ritualized mating behaviors during the rut, including posturing, antler wrestling (sparring), and bugling, a loud series of vocalizations which establishes dominance over other males and attracts females.

In early summer, elk cows give birth to a single spotted calf that weighs about 35 pounds (16 kg). On a diet of their mother’s rich milk, calves often double their weight during their first two weeks of life. Throughout this period, calves typically hide in dense vegetation while their mothers forage close by. The calves’ white spots are camouflage, meant to help them blend in with forest plants. During the later summer months, cows and calves come together in herds of up to 400. These are organized in a strictly-respected social hierarchy under the watchful eye of a matriarch.

A super cute baby elk calf or young fawn, showing its spotted, camouflage coat!Once fully mature, these formerly tiny elk calves are awesomely large: bulls weigh an average of 700 pounds (315 kg) and cows average about 500 pounds (225 kg). Bulls appear particularly tall because of their imposing antlers and dark shaggy mane.

Many Native American cultures revere the elk as a spiritual force. Elk are hunted as a game species, and are one of the most desired big game trophy animals in North America. As a source of game, their meat is leaner and higher in protein than beef, pork or chicken.
