This big boy was out for a stroll at the same time I was and neither of us realized the other was there until we were within about 20 yards of each other. He browsed around for a while keeping tabs on where I was, but since the Elk here are so used to people he never ran off. I actually moved on well before he did.
This is another nice young bull that I came across on one of my walks. He seemed to be very fascinated with me and was way more wary of me than the bull above. He kept me down wind as I walked and seemed to be keeping me in a clear line of sight as I moved through the woods. I got several really nice pictures of this one on this day as well as a couple cows he seemed to be tending.
