The Elk rut is on for the Tomales Bay herd of tule elk in California, and the air is full of bugle calls from anxious bulls. These were all shot from my Honda Odyessy "blind"

It's great to see a rare subspecies like the Tule Elk show up here on POTN. Nice work! Those are some really good bulls, especially considering that they are Tules.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Thanks everyone! I was actually up that way again yesterday, and the weather was much nicer, so of course the herd was way far away from the roads! I did manage a shot of the biggest bull with the largest harem. These elk have the million dollar view!

Awesome shots really gives a great feel for it all. Color in #4 seems a little off but others are spot on!
