    The first two are of a buck I saw during the rut two years in a row. He wasn't very shy when there were ladies around. The calf elk was while I was fencing and spooked a herd of elk over the hill and when the calves came back I just sat down and stayed still and the one walked right back up to me. The bull elk, was out in the heat in the middle of the day and had just rubbed his velvet off. If you look in the broadside picture, you can see that he is a true 8X8. The last picture is in the backcountry of the Big Horn Mountains. Enjoy, they were all pretty sweet to see in person.
