      Nice photo Bruce. It looks like it didn’t even know you were there…

      What a rack…

      Contemplating his losses. Great shot! Looks like you were pretty close??

        Thanks Kent! This was taken with my 7o-300 lens at 175mm. I guess I was about 40 or 50 feet away. This fella was huge, Iโ€™d say 800-900 lbs and about 5โ€™ tall at the shoulders, which probably makes him look closer than he really is…

        Here’s an image of the BIG bull, really just to share an impression of the size of his antlers…

          He never came close to where we were, as he was busy fending off challengers. This was taken at 550mm, and cropped a bit… It’s all about the adventure, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

      Nice Bruce, It’s funny how when I Lived up in Estes Park I got kind of sick of the Elk, that winter there were around 1000 hanging around town and they got to be a bit of a nuisance. The best place to get photos of them was on the golf course in town. Seeing these pics now I kind of miss them.

        Too much of anything can get old! Thatโ€™s how I feel about geese around Denver! Lol They can fly, so why do they insist on walking across the road? ๐Ÿ˜‰
