A big Bull Elk on the move. He knows there is another Bull in the area and just finished putting the run on him. This Bull had eleven or twelve cows in his harem when this photo was shot. He was the fullest body Elk we saw and only one other had one extra point on its antler than him.

    Nice shot Sandy. myself, my son Scott Denny and Jeff Weymier got many such shots along the Madison River between Sept 23 – 27th.
