It was a late afternoon in mid-August when I spotted this impressive Rocky Mountain Bull Elk in Moraine Park with a very large harem of about sixty cows. At first they were just relaxing in the treeline near this rustic cabin.
After about an hour and a half they finally started to emerge from the treeline and head to the open meadow to graze. The bull carefully observed as most of his harem was out in the meadow, however there were still a few remaining cows that ended up near the cabin.
I saw the bull start to head in that direction to retrieve those cows, and he accommodated me by passing in front of the cabin in just the right spot.
