This is a Wildlife Photography Print of a bull (male) elk grazing. The male elk grows antlers. A male elk weighs about 700 pounds and is about 5 feet high. A female (cow) elk weighs about 500 pounds and is slightly shorter. Bull elk begin growing their first set of antlers around 1 year old.
If you’ve never heard the bugle of the bull elk during the fall rutting period, you are in for an experience that is at once thrilling and haunting. In most cases, the bugle starts low and throaty, rising to a high whistle, then dropping to a grunt or a series of grunts.
