My husband Carl and I rode up to Benezette which is elk country yesterday. We were told that old Fred was seen in the village just sleeping. Fred has exceeded his normal years for an elk, as he is 17. These antlers grow each year and get up to 40lbs which is about 1/2 ton of pressure on their skull! No wonder old Fred is so tired. But he continued to just lay there as we walked up to him fairly close. They are an amazing animal.
