This for me is the “money shot” of the entire trip to Yellowstone this year!

For 2.5 days I was looking for elk and becoming more and more disappointed. When I first saw this guy he was just standing around but I did not care, I had a chance of getting a nice shot of an elk.

While I was taking shots, over the course of about 20 minutes or so, he decided to let one rip. His bugle was loud and long….totally awesome!

Taken in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA. This bull was in the Madison Junction area of West Yellowstone.
