I am working on some shots from last September when I was in Arizona. We spend a day at the Grand Canyon and late in the day we noticed some elk grazing, this fellow had just bedded down and was still chewing on dinner.

Hey, I know this guy! Nice shot. The racks are huge and still in velvet right now.

Nice photo. He would be even more impressive standing up.

nice shot of the Elk - we are in Yellowstone right now - have seen several of these guys their racks seem to grow wider where as the one you shot has grown more vertical - it is amazing to see the differences
