Artist's Description

I picked a heck of a weekend to go back to RMNP looking for elk. A front had moved through the Front Range, bringing cold temps and snow – just the way I like it!! It’s a little late in the rut, so there weren’t a lot of crowds either (again, just the way I like it).
The bad news was there were few elk, I saw no jousting, and there were few challengers. That didn’t stop this bull from responding to the few bellowed challenges issued by other bulls.
This bull had a harem of less than a dozen cows, and was pretty relaxed having me photograph him. I was able to use the car as a blind and stay relatively warm and comfortable for the shoot – rare treat. Most of the time I’m out in the worst weather, struggling to stay warm and not get blown off a mountain summit.
