Coming Out of the Woods
This big male elk was just coming out of a wooded section when I caught him. He was huge and very impressive to look at. You can see the steam he was blowing out with each breath. There was no doubt in my mind, that this was his place. I was to respect that. This one had not been tagged or colored yet. Which tells me that he is relatively young or that he doesn't show himself very often. I watched in awe as he moved out into the field like a linebacker for some pro football team. Ready to challenge anyone who dared get in his way.
