While my niece was visiting this past week, we took her to elk country to hopefully see some elk. We did happen to see this cow grazing on someone’s property by the road. We stopped but she could care less of our invasion. Even if this had been a bull elk, his antlers would not have been impressive. Each year they drop off after mating season in the fall and then they begin their growth again in spring, growing up to an inch a day. These antlers will reach the full growth from the year before and then some. Some of these antlers can reach up to several hundred lbs. No wonder their necks are so strong! Even though these animals seem tame and passive, they are still wild and should never be approached.
Wapiti is the Indian name that means ‘white rump’.
Dedicated to the beauty of wild life that we have the honor of sharing our world with.
